Paper Abstract

Mirrors have been examined using various surface analytical techniques following experiments to remove contaminants using either a CO2 laser or an argon ion gun. Optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, and noncontact surface profilometry were used to obtain morphological information about the mirror surface. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, energy dispersive X-ray analysis, and gas chromatograph/mass spectrometry were used to investigate the composition of the mirror surface.
