The colloid thruster uses electrospray atomization, whereby an electrolytic fluid (with conductivity ~1S/m) is injected, from an emitter, into an electric field (~1kV/mm) generated by an electrical potential difference between the emitter and an extraction grid. The fluid, under the influence of the electric field, forms a...
