McIlrath, Univ. of Maryland, Tech. Note BW-860, June 1977 en_US dc.description Author Institution: en_US dc.description.abstract This preliminary work discusses the different microdensitometer/microphotometer (MDMP) measurement techniques for measuring the nitrogen dioxide spectrum. The spectral atlas of $NO_{2}: 5530 - 6480$ {\AA} measured on a manual MDMP is $available^{1}$. A recent survey for the $NO_{2}$ spectroscopic $requirements^{2}$ indicated there is interest in the 5327 {\AA} region. The fluorescence cross section measurement of this region could lead to a good experimental lidar design for detecting the $NO_{2}$ in the stratosphere. Using the automatic MDMP, the thorium standard and $NO_{2}$ lines are stored on magnetic tape. Through a three-step computer process, a listing of the observed vacuum wavenumbers is generated and a CALCOMP plotter is used to provide the MDMP traces. The difference of the MDMPs and recent work on the visible spectrum of $NO_{2}$ will be discussed. en_US dc.format.extent 102270 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title MICRODENSITOMETRY/MICROPHOTOMETRY OF THE HIGH RESOLUTION SPECTRUM OF $NO_{2}$ 5327 {\AA} REGION en_US dc.type article en_US
