A contamination prevention system is constructed and arranged to prevent material from propagating with radiation into a lithographic apparatus. The contamination prevention system includes a rotatable carrier provided with a plurality of generally radially outwardly extending blades. The blades are constructed and arranged to absorb or deflect the material. The system also includes a stationary shaft, and a bearing constructed and arranged to rotate the rotatable carrier and the blades around the shaft. The rotatable carrier is provided with a space for at least partially receiving a portion of the shaft.
