Infrared Library Search on Principal-Component-Analyzed Fourier-Transformed Absorption Spectra

Volume 41, Number 2 (Feb. 1987) Page 185-195

Wang, Ching Po; Isenhour, Thomas L.

Fourier-transformed infrared absorption spectra are compressed by principal-component analysis. Searches using the compressed data demonstrate the success of the compression. A search technique utilizing principal components in a prefilter selection produces the most efficient infrared library search method.
