Abstract

The experimental determination of absolute intensities for isolated spectral lines or for entire vibration-rotation bands involves formidable experimental difficulties. For this reason it is highly desirable to consider the use of techniques which permit the determination of absolute f values from relative intensity measurements performed by the use of a low resolution spectrograph. It is the purpose of this note to call attention to a useful experimental procedure for spectral lines with Doppler contour and for optical densities which are sufficiently large to assure a nonlinear dependence of intensity on optical density. The method is a generalization of a two-path experiment proposed for emission studies on flames.
