scope:

1.1 This practice covers a technique for collecting samples of materials that are part of the residual gas environment of an evacuated vacuum chamber. The practice uses a device designated as a "cold finger" that is placed within the environment to be sampled and is cooled so that constituents of the environment are retained on the cold-finger surface.

1.2 The practice covers a method for obtaining a sample from the cold finger and determining the weight of the material removed from the cold finger.

1.3 The practice contains recommendations as to ways in which the sample may be analyzed to identify the constituents that comprise the sample.

1.4 By determining the species that constitute the sample, the practice may be used to assist in defining the source of the constituents and whether the sample is generally representative of samples similarly obtained from the vacuum chamber itself.

1.5 This practice covers alternative approaches and usages to which the practice can be put.

1.6 The degree of molecular flux anisotropy significantly affects the assurance with which one can attribute characteristics determined by this procedure to the vacuum chamber environment in general.

1.7 The temperature of the cold finger significantly affects the quantity and species of materials collected.

1.8 Units-The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.9 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific warning statements, see Section 8.

1.10 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
