Data Handling in Fourier Transform Spectroscopy

  • James W. Cooper
Part of the Modern Analytical Chemistry book series (MOAC)


The growing use of the Fourier transform in various forms of spectroscopy has necessitated the introduction of the minicomputer as an integral part of the spectrometer system. It is used both for data collection and processing and cannot be used effectively without some understanding of its potential limitations.
