Abstract

The 1977 International Conference on Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy was held 20–24 June 1977 at Columbia, S.C. The manuscripts of most of the invited speakers at this meeting follow this report. This paper summarizes the seven papers in this category which could not be submitted. These papers described the application of cryogenic interferometers to atmospheric sounding (Stair), to the measurement of cosmic background radiation (Richards), and to the study of chemical reaction dynamics (McDonald). The use of ultrasensitive far infrared detectors for studying the properties of solids was described by Sievers. Genzel and Griffiths described applications of the optical subtraction technique for far infrared and mid infrared measurements, respectively. Finally Wyntjes summarized his views on the present and future of interferometry.
