STS-100 Test Stand Experiment
CX(s) Applied: B3.6
Location(s): Princeton, New Jersey
Office(s): Princeton Site Office, Science
The proposed action would consist of operation of a 100 kilovolt (kV) test stand, the STS-I00, acquired from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), in which advanced plasma sources will be developed and ion-ion plasmas will be studied at Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory. The STS-100 would be used to generate 100 kilo-electron volt ion beams, as well as a general purpose vacuum chamber with excellent diagnostic access.
