Abstract
THE CONCEPT OF LIQUID FILM MEDIATED LASER PROTECTION WILL BE INVESTIGATED FOR TUNGSTEN COATED CARBON SURFACES. A COMBINED THEORETICAL-EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAM IS PROPOSED. THE THEORETICAL EFFORT WILL DETERMINE RANGES OF STABILITY FOR LIQUID FILMS UNDER CW LASER INTERACTION CONDITIONS. FILM FAILURE MECHANISMS WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR TUNGSTEN COATED CARBON AND OTHER CANDIDATE MATERIALS WILL BE IDENTIFIED. THE EXPERIMENTAL PORTION OF THIS PROGRAM WILL DETERMINE FILM STABILITY STABLE VAPORIZATION PRODUCTS AND HEATS OF VAPORIZATION FOR TUNGSTEN COATED CARBON. MEASUREMENTS WILL BE PERFORMED FOR SEVERAL FILM THICKNESS BY E-BEAM HEATING AT ENERGY DEPOSITION RATES SIMILAR TO CW LASER CONDITIONS.
