25 January 1990 Measurements Of Polarization Scattering In The Vacuum Ultraviolet
Author Affiliations +
NASA's In-Situ Contamination Effects Facility, Marshall Space Flight Center will be used to measure the polarization scattering from optical surfaces due to outgassed molecular contamination. Measurements will be taken using a non-coherent vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) source at 123.6 nm and a set of three solar blind VUV photomultipliers. An in-plane VUV BRDF experiment is described and details of the on-going program to characterize optical materials exposed to the space environment is reported.
