Simulated Space Environment Effects Testing System (SEETS) with LPSR 300V attached

Our Ultra-high vacuum chamber allows for insitu tesing and measurement of optical properties within a simulated space environment. (See also our space effects measurement service):

  • Equipped with a 1600 Watt SpectraPhysics ultraviolet (UV) light source and a 150 Watt Hamamatsu Deuterium vacuum untraviolet (VUV) light source. The UV source uses a water filter to minimize sample heating, upgradeable by adding both low energy Electron Flood Gun and Proton Sources;
  • Insitu measurement of total spectral hemispherical reflectance and solar alpha can be made by utilizing AZ Technology's LPSR-300V insitu spectroreflectometer; (Wavelength range: 250-2800nm; Measurement time two minutes per sample);
  • Twelve 1"x.75" samples can be exposed simultaneously;
    • Types of samples include:
      • powder,
      • thin films,
      • coatings;
    • Temperature controlled -30 C to 100 C
    • Sample tray transfer mechanism between exposure and measurement chambers utilizes a retractable linear magnetic translator attachment,
    • The sample tray's orientation is horizontal.
  • Vacuum system is UHV and utilizes both ion and turbo pumps. Operational vacuum level is ~10-9 Torr and the sample exposure chamber is ion pumped.
  • Insitu monitoring of irradiance utilizes an insitu fiber optic probe for spectral radiometer data of the UV source and a NIST calibrated detector for the VUV source.

*Note: terms reflectance, emittance and absorptance and terms reflectivity, emissivity and absorptivity are often used interchangeably. Spectroreflectometer, spectro-reflectometer and spectral reflectometer are also used interchangeably.
