Abstract:

An experimental facility was constructed to measure the rotational Raman scattering cross sections of N2 and O2 at 10.6 microns. The system was designed to measure the Raman cross sections relative to the CO2 radiative absorption cross section in the 10.4-micron band. Static and dynamic calibrations of the system were devised to determine the importance of scattering from walls and dust relative to the Rayleigh and Raman components of the radiation scattered from the gas.
