Effect of Foregin Gases on the Continuous Absorption Spectrum of Bromine

Nature volume 143, page 560 (01 April 1939) | Download Citation



ALTHOUGH much attention has been devoted to the broadening of spectral lines in the presence of foreign gases, little systematic work has been done on the effect of foreign gases on intensities of absorption spectra. We have therefore examined the effect of the following gases on the continuous absorption of bromine, using an objective method of photographic photometry: hydrogen chloride and bromide, carbon dioxide, oxygen and nitrogen.
