Paper Abstract

We outline design considerations and operating characteristics of the Los Alamos Fourier-transform spectrometer, a state-of-the-art instrument operating from 200 nm to 20 μm with a resolution of 0.0026 cm-1 and very high wave number and intensity accuracy. Recent work in molecular spectroscopy carried out with this instrument will be discussed, including N2+ spectra obtained in inductively-coupled plasmas; high-temperature spectra of diatomic molecules of astrophysical interest; high-resolution rovibrational fine structure; and Fourier-transform Raman spectroscopy of species in expansion-cooled gases.
