Abstract

An interferometric force balance (Nanobalance) for space micro-thruster qualification is presented. A new generation of space micro-thrusters is under development aiming at thrust resolution and accuracy below one micronewton. Nanobalance has been conceived and developed for ground calibration of thrust time profile and noise with sub-micronewton accuracy.
