Mass and Mass Values

Description: Report discussing the different bases for determining mass values and instances where these differences may be crucial. The first part is a historical summary of weighing, standards, and the assignment of value; and the interfacing of mass measurements with civilization.

The First Spectrum of Hafnium (HF I)

Description: Report continuing W. K. Meggers' previous analysis in LS-coupling. This coupling is not rigorous in Hf I, and many intervals are irregular. Consequently, the levels are given also in numerical order with the even and odd levels presented in separate tables. The long line lists are given in two Appendices: Appendix A contains the observed Zeeman data for the individual lines, 531 in all; Appendix B consists of the complete line list of observed and classified lines. By far the greater part of the analysis is that of Meggers.

Vibration-Rotation Structure in Absorption Bands for the Calibration of Spectrometers From 2 to 16 Microns

Description: Reports discussing bands of common gases that have been tabulated and remeasured wherever necessary from 2 to 16 microns to obtain an accuracy of about 0.03 cm-1 throughout the region and to provide good calibrating points at frequent intervals. Some 600 rotation-vibration lines are illustrated in 20 spectrograms and wavenumbers are listed in companion tables with considerable intercomparison with worthy data obtained in other laboratories. The absorption bands were remeasured or calibrated by using either a precisely graduated grating circle or standard atomic lines with the fringe system formed by a Fabry-Perot interferometer. Characteristic features of the individual bands are discussed briefly and references to other publications are given. The substances used for calibration include H2O, CO2, CO, HCl, HBr, NH3, C2H2, CH4, N2O, and polystyrene film.
