The Arc Spectrum of Chlorine


L. A. TURNER (Phy. Rev., vol. 27, p. 397; 1926) discovered the fundamental or resonance lines of chlorine due to the transition 4M2(M2N1). De Bruin (Amsterdam Proc., vol. 30, p. 20; 1927) found a number of lines in the visible with the constant frequency difference of 530, and Laporte in a note to NATURE (vol. 121, p. 1021; 1928) announced the discovery by Asagoe of a set of lines between λ4700 and λ4200, which he ascribed to the transition 4M2(N1N2).
