Abstract
Radiation induced phosphorescence of uv windows has the potential for generating crippling levels of background signal in space flight sensors. VUV fluorescence spectra have been obtained for three common window materials, and the phosphorescence decay curves have been recorded for a range of temperatures for two of the samples tested. We present this data and employ models used to fit the STIS background data to analyze the observed decay curves.
