Welcome to the

Plasmadynamics & Electric Propulsion Laboratory

The PEPL mission

  • Make electric propulsion (EP) devices more efficient and of better performance
  • Understand spacecraft integration issues that could impede the widespread use of these devices on scientific, commercial, and military spacecraft
  • Identify non-propulsion applications of EP systems


Get Involved

We’re always looking for enthusiastic graduate and undergraduate students to participate in research at PEPL. Feel free to contact us with general questions or if you’re interested in working at PEPL.
