Long Duration Exposure Facility experiment M0003 deintegration observationsThe four trays of the M0003 materials experiment on LDEF contained over 1200 test articles from 19 subexperiments. The complete tests article complement represented a broad range of materials, including thin film optical coatings, paints, polymer sheets and tapes, adhesives, and composites, for use in various spacecraft applications including thermal control, structures, optics, and solar power. All of the test articles were examined individually using bright field, dark field, and Nomarski light microscopy techniques. The condition of the test articles were photo-documented and observed global and anomalous effects were recorded for the benefit of the subexperimenters.
