Abstract:

The variation with wavelength of the attenuation coefficient of battery-grade distilled water was studied with a grating spectrograph over the range from 3750 A to 6850 A, in an attempt to discern any narrow wavelength fluctuations in the coefficient. With a 0.2 Angstrom resolution and a water path of 32 ft, the detection limit corresponded to about 0.00002cm variation of the attenuation coefficient and no fine structure was detectable. Author
