Paper Abstract

Studies on the effectiveness of the jet flush in removing particle fallout and Arizona-standard fine dust on polished optical substrates have been carried out at ambient pressure and vacuum. These studies have shown that the CO2 jet flush is a viable method for removing contaminants from optical surfaces with no damage to the surface. The studies also show that the jet flush has potential for use as an on-orbit cleaning device for space optics.
