Paper Abstract

The advantages of measuring infrared spectra at low resolution are discussed from both a theoretical and practical standpoint. Multicomponent analysis of materials with strongly overlapping bands can be achieved at resolutions at least an order of magnitude greater than the full-width at half height of the narrowest bands in the spectrum of any component. Discriminant analysis of vapor-phase spectra can be performed at a resolution of 50 cm-1 without significant loss of accuracy.
