About the Project
This project will investigate the magnetic vectoring of propulsion plumes using high-temperature superconductor units in an orbital environment. The work will involve both simulation and experimental measurements. The ideal student will have a background in applied physics, electromagnetic theory, or space engineering. Previous experience in developing space hardware is not required but it is preferred.
The PhD candidate may be enrolled under the Faculty of Science or the Faculty of Engineering, as appropriate to the candidate’s interests and background.
