The spacecraft for the Solar Probe Plus mission, due to launch in 2018, will encounter an extreme near-Sun thermal and plasma environment. Outgassing of materials such as silicone adhesives in this previously unexplored environment can result in deposits on solar arrays, instrument components, and other sensitive spacecraft surfaces. Array surfaces exposed to UV can cause those deposits to be fixed to the surface, degrading their performance. To assess the severity of the deposits, the Solar Probe Plus program has undertaken ...

Emcore has been performing High Intensity High Temperature (HIHT) tests on covered, interconnected cell (CIC) assemblies. End-of-life performance of spacecraft solar panels depends to a great extent on changes in the optical properties of the CICs coverglass adhesive during the mission. An important change in silicone coverglass adhesives is observed as degradation of short wavelength transmission, often called darkening or yellowing . This is understood to be driven by exposure to high intensity UV and by exposure to el ...
