Abstract

WE have recently investigated the vibration-rotation spectrum of acetylene in the near infra-red. This absorption spectrum has been photographed in the first order of the 21 ft. Rowland concave grating which has been recently set up in a Runge-Paschen mounting Various lengths of absorbing gas have been used, namely, 3, 6, and 9 metres, at atmospheric pressure. Employing the new Kodak zenocyanine infra-red plates, we have been able to extend our investigations beyond 1μ.
