Abstract

Goddard Space Flight Center has developed the practice of measuring far ultraviolet (FUV) transmission of optical systems, and components, in a gaseous nitrogen environment, and applied the technique to tests of several flight optical systems. This practice is a flexible, cheap, safe, and reliable alternative to equivalent testing in vacuum chambers.
