Recent studies on quantitative spectroscopy and gas emissivities


Representative theoretical and experimental studies relating to the determination of gaseous radiation from isothermal systems are discussed. The following recently concluded studies are described: f-number measurements for OH behind shock fronts; a method for the direct determination of radiative and collisional life times of vibrationally excited, molecules; emissivity calculations for CO_2; emissivity calculations for a hydrogen plasma at temperatures up to about 10,000°K.
