A high-vacuum plant and methods for studying thermal and radiation-stimulated desorption from solid-state materials are described. Radiation-stimulated desorption was studied using an electron gun with a 1- to 120-keV beam energy, featuring a new technology of power supply units. Partial pressure gages with a sensitivity of up to 10-13 Pa were used to record mass spectra of residual gases. Results of studying thermal- and radiation-stimulated yields of hydrogen from submicrocrystalline samples of a BT-6 alloy are presented to demonstrate the serviceability of the created procedures.
