Paper Abstract

A Michelson interferometer-spectrometer utilizing a rapid, continuous scan has been combined with a minicomputer data acquisition system to provide the capability for measurement of spectra containing up to 217 resolution elements at a resolution of 0.5 cm-1. The instrument has been used at the Coudg' focus of the University of Texas 2,72 meter telescope, Most of the work done to date with the instrument has been in the 1,0 to 1,41 spectral range using a sensitive germanium photovoltaic cell.
