Abstract

Laser induced contamination deals with the formon of a deposit on an optical component in vacuum due to the interaction between the laser beam, the surface of the optic and outgassing species from nearby materials. This can lead to a decrease in optical transmission of the component, and potentially to permanent damage, and can thus severly degrade the performances of optical instruments in space applications. Extensive testing has been carried out in the framework of ESA´s ALADIN Aeolus projectin order to mitigate the risk of performance degradation of the ALADIN LIDAR instrumentdue to laser induced contamination.
