Abstract:

The University of Liege is operating, since 1958, a laboratory of solar spectroscopy at the International Scientific Station of the Jungfraujoch Switzerland. During the last years, much effort has been devoted in two main directions a techniques of correction for the effects of the instrumental function to obtain the best possible knowledge of central intensities and profiles of photospheric lines. b increase of the signal to noise ratio in the records in order to detect and measure very faint absorption features. In addition, a balloon-borne equipment is now under construction in Liege to observe, with maximum resolution, the near infrared solar spectrum from an altitude of about 80,000 feet. Author
