Development of a mesosphere dust detector

Study period:1998 - 2002

Research overview:
There are dusts in a few nm in size originated from burning of meteors in the mesosphere (altitude 80-90 km) of the Earth's ionosphere. The quantitative measurement has not been, however, made yet, and so we are considering development of a rocket carrying observation machine. For the method of detection, we are considering a method of sorting electrons using a high frequency electric field and magnetic field.
