High resolution and the accurate measurement of intensities

  • John W. C. Johns
Plenary Lectures


Absolute intensities in several vibration rotation bands of CO2 and in the pure rotation spectrum of CO have been measured. The results have been used to assess the precision and accuracy which such measurements can attain when made with a high resolution Fourier transform spectrometer.

Key words
