Part of QB50 to study lower termosphere.
QB50. Carry a solar EUV sensor to in-situ measure the solar EUV radiation intensity with the aim of maximizing the science return of the mission for a better characterization of the cause-effect relationship. The solar EUV probe measures the photoelectron current emitted from the electrodes into ambient plasma.
The electrode is biased to negative voltage with respect to the satellite frame and the current is amplified and filtered before being converted into digital formats. In the implementation, two electrodes with different metal coating are utilized and the current difference between the two probes. The solar EUV instrument has been tested in ionospheric conditions in the NCKU Space Plasma Chamber. QB50.
