8 January 1990 Infrared Black Paints For Room And Cryogenic Temperatures
Author Affiliations +
This paper describes a study made on five black paints for visible and infrared applications at room and cryogenic temperatures. This work was undertaken for the Infrared Space Observatory, a space optical project under study, planned for 1993. Reflectivity measurements have been performed in the spectral range 0.4 μm - 500 μm at 300 K and 7 K; variations with the angle of incidence are examined at five wave-lengths. Bidirectional reflectance distribution function measurements were obtained with a He-Ne laser. Adhesion and thermo-optical characteristics were studied before and after several thermal cycles (300 K to 4 K).
