Abstract:

A bibliography is presented which is the result of a survey of recent literature pertaining to electrical contacts in a space environment. It supports a laboratory investigation into the effects of strong ultraviolet radiation, hard vacuum 10 to the -8th power mm Hg or less, and low temperature -50 to 200F upon moving electrical contacts operating at currents in the milliampere-microampere range and at contact potentials up to a few millivolts. The bibliography includes references to work antecedent to the laboratory investigation, even though such work may not have been carried out within the specified range of conditions. The 169 references are arranged alphabetically by personal authors in 3 categories 1 books, 2 reports, and 3 journal articles. An index of secondary personal authors and corporate sources is provided, in addition to a subject index. Author
