Developed by Subcommittee: F01.03
WITHDRAWN, NO REPLACEMENT
Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F01 on Electronics, this practice was withdrawn in June 2008 in accordance with section 10.5.3.1 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.
1.1 This practice describes techniques for the determination of evaporated barium yield, getter gas content, and getter carbon monoxide sorption capacity for barium flash getters used in electron devices. Test conditions are chosen to approximate use conditions.
1.2 Auxiliary procedures for cleaning, for determining vacuum system leak-up rates, for flashing getters, and for determining barium content in both getter fill and films are also given.
1.3 The various tests described are destructive in nature. In general the tests are semiquantitative but they can be expected to yield comparative information on a single-laboratory basis to the precision indicated. No information relative to multilaboratory reproducibility is available.
