Abstract

Design, construction, and performance data are given for a vacuum grating spectrometer which has been used in the frequency range 300–10 cm−1. The Czerny–Turner optics used have proved advantageous for high-resolution far infrared spectrometers. Use of recently developed radiation filtering techniques, light pipes, and light cones lead to a very simple and convenient spectrometer. A sample volume to path length ratio much lower than those found for conventional infrared gas sample cells is possible using light-pipe sample cells. The length of such sample cells may be easily extended without the additional optics needed for conventional long path length sample cells.
