Outgassing Rate Measurements For The Screening Of Nonmetallic Materials

The purpose of this handbook is to present a methodology for the systematic screening of nonmetallic materials with a line of sight to an optical surface, thermal control surface, or other contamination sensitive surfaces in a vacuum environment. The outgassing measurements made using the methods described here will support configurational analysis of the release of molecular contamination from the surface of a material and facilitate the prediction of the deposition of condensable materials on one or more adjacent surfaces.
