HALL EFFECT THRUSTERS
MULTIPLE CONFIGURATIONS Busek has studied various Hall Thruster configurations including (from L:R) circular, clustered, racetrack and nested.
MULTIPLE PROPELLANTS Busek has used hall effect thrusters to create plasmas composed of various elements / propellants (shown at right).  These plasma sources are used in studies of general plasma properties as well as space applications, such as in-situ research utilization for interplanetary missions.

DATASHEETS
Hall Thrusters generate thrust by creating and accelerating ionized gas via magnetic and electrostatic fields. Busek is a leader in hall thruster  development, culminating in the flight of the first US-based hall thruster on TacSat-2 and recent launch of FalconSat-5. Busek has developed  numerous hall thrusters, each of which are capable of a range of power and thrust levels. Busek produces a range of hall thrusters with power levels from 200 to 20,000W as shown below. See data sheets for a full range of low  power and high power hall effect thrusters.
