Publisher:Ohio State University
Three topics of importance in spectroscopy are: (a) wavelength (or wave number) measurements, (b) line shape measurements, and (c) intensity measurements. The application of a far-infrared, two-beam interferometer to the measurement of these quantities will be illustrated with examples of the far-infrared spectra of gases and solids. Some of the problems encountered in making these measurements will be discussed. For some special cases further economy in interferometric measurements appear possible and this possibility will be briefly explored.
