LIFET4 vacuum chamber

Vacuum chamber with auxiliary chamber, connected by 250mm shutter. Moveable semicircular boom (e.g. for plasma diagnostics) at one end.
Addition of Class 7 cleanroom tent and thermal shroud (1x1x2 m³). Plasma plume diagnostics for electric propulsion with Faraday Cups, Retarding Potential Analyzers and Langmuire Probes. Thrust Balance for electric propulsion. Thrust Vector Balance in development (2021). High-resolution camera and chamber illumination.
