Techniques and Attachments for a Hohlraum-Type Infrared Reflectance Spectrophotometer

  • Roger H. Keith


The operation of a research infrared spectrophotometer entails inherent problems which arise from the same features which enable the user of such an instrument to perform a wide variety of determinations in a number of modes of operation. Typical difficulties are caused by the complexity of an instrument which must be made to perform a single-beam, dual-beam, programmed, or constant-energy modes with a multitude of source energies and configurations in a number of spectral ranges.
