Title Outgassing rates - an introduction
Abstract Any restriction placed on our ability to clean materials for use in vacuum, including the metals from which chambers and components are manufactured, could result in a deterioration of the performance of the equipment including complete vacuum systems. The method used up to now for monitoring the effect of pre-treatments on vacuum materials is the measurement of outgassing rates, which is the subject of this report. It deals briefly with the origins, effects and methods of reducing outgassing in vacuum systems. It then deals in detail with methods of measuring outgassing rates and ends with a discussion of results published by different authors. Much of the report will be confined to a consideration of stainless steel which is widely used in high and ultra high vacuum technology and on which there is a considerable amount of published data.
