We present three successfully accelerated low-density projectile samples in addition to iron used as a control. Two different conducting coatings - poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) and polypyrrole (PPY) - were used over polystyrene latex (PS) as well as a sample of pure polypyrrole (PPY). Table 1 shows sample characteristics and responses. The mean mass has been calculated from the mean sample diameter and average density; note this hasn't been deteimined for iron as its size isn't monodispersive.
