Part of the Developments in Applied Spectroscopy book series (DAIS, volume 5)


A multiple-scan interference spectrometer is described, as are exploratory experiments with the application of the instrument to observe low-temperature emission spectra of various substances, The instrument is highly senstive and could be used for transmission, reflection, and emission spectroscopy, especially in situations where the signals obtained are weak.
