Paper Abstract

The specification and characterization of particulate contamination is an area of active interest for ISO TC172/SC9/WG6. The starting point for the development of a new ISO standard is the US national standard, MIL-STD-1246. The paper will discuss the basic framework for MIL-1246 and introduce the issues that need to be addressed before a complete ISO standard for particulate contamination of optics can be issued. It is also hoped that this paper will stimulate discussion leading to a more complete and useful standard.
