SINCE the publication of Lyman's monograph "Spectroscopy of the Extreme Ultra Violet", there has been a steady development of technique and accumulation of results in the field of vacuum spectroscopy. Improved glass gratings and the use of grazing incidence have enabled the limit of the spectrum to be pushed to shorter wave-lengths, until now it is well within the long-wave limit of soft X-rays. Many spectra have already been studied. It has thus become desirable that a new survey should be made of the investigations which have been carried out in this field. In his valuable little book "Vakuumspektroskopie" Dr. Hans Bomke has set himself this task.
