Abstract:

The ultimate goal of this program of research was to measure the strength of the fundamental vibrational-rotational band of NO which is centered at about 4.3 micrometer 2325cm in the infrared. A theoretical analysis was made of the fractional absorptance of monochromatic radiation by the fundamental vibrational-rotational band of NO. Equipment constructed or partially constructed for this project included a high-vacuum pumping station, pressure gauges, a gas-handling manifold, as gas purification system a radio-frequency generator, an infrared source and chopper assembly, a lead-selenide detector assembly, two photomultiplier-tube units, a long path length white cell, and parts of a data acquisition system. A PbSxSe1-x diode-laser system would be required to observe the absorption in NO at low pressures.
