Applications of NICE-OHMS to Molecular Spectroscopy

Abstract

This chapter briefly discusses the general operation of the technique of Noise Immune Cavity Enhanced Optical Heterodyne Molecular Spectroscopy (NICE-OHMS), then goes on to describe the various laser systems that it has been implemented with and the molecules it has been used to study. The relative strengths and weaknesses of each of the laser systems, both in the near- and mid-infrared spectral regions, are highlighted. The molecules that have been studied with NICE-OHMS are described, with particular focus given to those systems that differ in some way from the ‘generic’ NICE-OHMS setup, and those spectra from which new scientific information was extracted.
