Researchers have presented a model of a space engine that uses radiation from a nearby star to disperse nanoparticles and create low-level thrust.. The essence of his work is to use neutral nanoparticles of an insulating material or other material, which become polarized. In this case, all elements with a positive charge are displaced in the direction of the field, and negative in the opposite direction. As a result, an electric field is created.. The study found that a technique based on the principles of plasmonics can work, and also suggested parameters for its successful application in practice. Scientists have focused on solving the issue of the strength of nanoparticles in an accelerator, studying how the corners of the plates in an injector affect the forces acting on these particles.. One of the main factors behind them was the lack of a power source in space, according to a team from…
