Infrared Spectroscopy and Infrared Lasers in Air Pollution Research and Monitoring

Volume 24, Number 2 (April 1970) Page 161-174

Hanst, Philip L.

The use of spectroscopic methods in the analysis of the atmosphere is discussed. The special advantages of infrared vibration-rotation spectra for identification and measurement of air pollutants are emphasized. The capabilities of lasers in atmospheric work are reviewed, with particular attention being given to proposed methods of detecting pollutants by absorption of selected in laser lines. Some commentary is presented on current and future atmospheric studies.
