Abstract:

This report summarizes experiments in which 4.3 micrometers emission is produced when CO2 is irradiated with 2.7 micrometers radiation. Measurements of the attenuation of this signal by various CO2 filled absorption cells are discussed. Absolute intensity measurements are also discussed. The evidence seems to suggest a large component of the 4.3 micrometers radiation is due to the bands 021-020 and 101-100. Complete characterization of the composition of the 4.3 micrometers emission will require detailed radiative transport calculations. Author
