Abstract

A method of high accuracy applicable to various prisms in infra-red spectrometry has been used to calibrate NaCl and KBr prisms. The method requires only a small number of experimental bands, is practically independent of resolving power, provides an extensive wave-length range, and permits a tabulated calibration without the necessity of drawing calibration curves. The procedure is described in detail with an example.
