Influence of ablation on vacuum-ultraviolet radiation in a plasma wind tunnel flow

Abstract:

Plasma wind tunnel experiments have been performed simulating a Hayabusa reentry trajectory point at 78.8 km altitude with a velocity of 11.7  km/s corresponding to a local mass–specific enthalpy of 68.4  MJ/kg and a stagnation pressure of 2.44 kPa. Ablation–radiation coupling is investigated using a carbon preform sample, a lightweight carbon phenolic ablator sample, and cooled copper. Optical emission spectroscopic measurements in the vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) regime (116–197 nm) have been c...
