The Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) mission will provide full sky images of Energetic Neutral Atoms (ENA's) from interstellar space. The Collimator is tasked to restrict the Field of View (FOV) of IBEX, as well as repel ions up to 10keV in energy to a degree greater than 10.
4, and electrons up to 600eVto the same degree. This thesis retests the capability of the Collimator to perform these functions, as well as improving upon the testing procedures.
