Durability test of space-use materials in space environments

(Atomic oxygen environment)

This vacuum chamber is used to simulate the atomic oxygen environment in LEO.
The energetic atomic oxygen flow at about 8km/s is achieved by means of shooting a pulsed laser beam to the oxygen molecular oxygen gas ejected into the nozzle.
We study atomic oxygen material deterioration using this chamber.
