1" Witness Optic: Ionizer

T - Technical notes
Other Versions:
S/N: 245
Orientation: Horizontal
Location: Ionizer output

Expt Details: At this link you will find the results of glass witness plate placed, by Kate and Calum, at the output of the ionizer to measure dust. The ionizer was run for 4 hours under the flow conditions expected when filling the test mass chamber.

Absorption data (background): Sample given to Kate - inserted in the system and present during deionization flow with N2. No "before" data, it was intended to look for particulate. It has been tested at JPL.
Absorption data: Clean with FC and measure at high (normal) power
The absorption is very low (from different batch?), it's interesting to see there are relative high absorption zones.
