Paper Abstract

The technique of Fourier spectroscopy is instrumental in achieving a high sensitivity for the spectrometry of detecting weak infrared emission sources. In our survey study conducted on the infrared emission of the atmospheric species, this fact is fully appreciated; both the multiplex advantage and the interferometric gain on collecting the infrared photons, together with our emission source of a 36-meter-long electric discharge column, are essential to detect various atmospheric bands and lines, some well known and some little known. Lately, we succeeded to observe the infrared vibration fundamental band of NH which was previously undetected.
