Abstract [en]

The resilience and performance of carbon microcoil heaters made by laser-induced chemical vapor deposition (LCVD) to be used as an efficient means for increasing the specific impulse of cold/hot gas microthrusters were investigated. Two naked carbon coils and two tungsten coated carbon coils coated through LCVD were used in this experiment. Each pair of coated and uncoated carbon coils were heated resistively in a thermal cycling between 300-1173K and 973-1173K for 2 h in 0.000003 mbar and 2 bar N. The results show that at these temperatures the carbon microcoils and nitrogen propellant were compatible while the tungsten coated microcoils started degrading. It was observed that LVCD-deposited carbon and tungsten-coated carbon microcoils can withstand low to medium-high temperatures for extended periods of time during thermal cycling without showing signs of degradation.
