- An understanding of the behavior of materials, of dielectrics in particular, under charged particle bombardment is essential to the prediction and prevention of the adverse effects of spacecraft charging. A one-dimensional model for charging of samples in a test facility was used in conjunction with experimental data taken to develop "material charging characteristics" for silvered Teflon. These characteristics were then used in a one-dimensional model for charging in space to examine expected response. Relative charging rates as well as relative charging levels for silvered Teflon and metal are discussed.
