The ion drive system produces and accelerates the ions to an initial velocity in order to produce thrust, this thrust is however extremely small.
In my proposed synchrotron drives the atoms are first ionized i.e. the electrons are shred off from the ions and are sent to the neutralizer .Meanwhile the ions are fed into a synchrotron system to increase their velocity to relativistic speeds.
For more datailed information please view the attached document.
Also please let me know if you have any suggestions.
