MetadataShow full item record
A multichannel Rayleigh refractometer similar to the one constructed by Eaton and Thomas was proposed to investigate the optical dispersion of vapors in the two-to-12 micron region c The proposed system differed from the previous gas measurement system primarily in the methods of vapor admission and pressure-temperature control. Additional modifications included changes in monochromator and source assembly design s provision for two-directional scan of the infrared spectrum and changes in the interferometer gasketing and end window design. This report covers the design and construction of such a system by Captain James D Knipp., USA, and Captain Stanley Lenard, USA, at the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School from July 1962 through May 1963, at which time the system was completed and ready for operation. The writers wish to express appreciation to Professor Sidney H Kalmbach both for his ideas that fostered this project and his guidance throughout its pursuit.
