Low Temperature Measurements by Rotational Raman Scattering

  • Jack A. Salzman


In this presentation, concepts are developed for the use of rotational Raman scattering for gas-phase temperature measurements. Comparisons between experimental and theoretical air spectra are given, as are analyses and experimental data related to the measurement of temperature by utilization of ratios of rotational line intensities.
