Abstract

We have built a sputter erosion sensor using Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy (CRDS) for validating the numerical analysis tool called ''JIEDI tool''. In this paper, we measured the velocity distribution function of the aluminum atoms sputtered from an aluminum acceleration grid of the ion thruster. The experimentally obtained aluminum velocity distribution have been found to be compatible with those calculated by the numerical analysis method.
