Auroral spectra have been obtained which show the $0-0 N^{+}_{2}$ Meinel band at $1.11 \mu$ and further bands of the $\Delta$ $v=-1$ sequence of this system between $1.5 \mu$ and $1.6 \mu$. In the twilight airglow spectrum the $0-1$ band of the $^{1}\Delta_{g}-^{1}\Sigmma_{g}^{+}$ atmospheric $O_{2}$ system has been detected as an emission feature which decays in a way which suggests that band is emitted as a result of a phosphorescent excitation by solar radiation. The night airglow spectrum in this region consists entirely of the intense $\Delta$ $v=2$ and $\Delta$ $v=3$ sequences of Meinel OH vibration-rotation bands. Absolute intensity measurements have been made of the bands studied.” en_US dc.format.extent 80143 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title INFRARED SPECTRA OF THE AIRGLOW AND AURORA BETWEEN 0.9 $\mu$ AND 2.0 $\mu$ en_US dc.type article en_US
