LDEF contaminants analysis dataModification of surface texture for Ram Facing FEP Teflon on the Long Duration Exposure Facility (LDEF) satellite is documented. Photos of changes in surface texture if thermal blanket material with position on tray C-08 are presented. Infrared spectra and photographic documentation of molecular film deposits on LDEF surfaces by location is reported. Results of a survey of the functional groups and elemental composition of the brown film found widely distributed on the surface of LDEF is shown. A partial photographic catalog of LDEF particulate contaminants is included. A set of photos of particles collected or photographed in place on the surface of LDEF is shown. Particle counts and surface obscuration data for the LDEF satellite are reported. The surface data in tables and charts is presented for the LDEF satellite by location.
