[LSSE10-02(Invited)] Space Propulsion by Laser / Light Ablation for Space Debris Cleaning

*Koichi Mori1 (1. Osaka Metropolitan University)

New designs of the space propulsion by laser or light ablation for Space Debris Cleaning has been pursued experimentally. We are now measuring the ablative propulsion force with extremely weak power density using an electrostatic levitation furnace, which is useful to simulate the thermally and mechanically isolated state of the real space debris in space. Moreover, we recently try to measure the impulsive force due to the ablation by extremely-ultraviolet light.
