Space debris and micrometeoroid impact on spacecraft elements: Experimental simulation

Inorganic Materials: Applied Research. 2013. Vol. 4. No. 3. P. 205-210.
Kalaev M., Semkin N., Novikov L.

We study experimentally how optical, electrical, and physical properties of spacecraft surface elements (optical glasses, "metal-insulator-metal" structures, and solar arrays) change upon bombardment by high-speed particles of submicron and micron size. For particle acceleration, we use an electrodynamic accelerator. В© Pleiades Publishing, Ltd., 2013.
