Abstract

Laboratory study was conducted on the molecular and atomic emissions which are considered detectable in the IR radiative background of the upper atmosphere. The IR spectra of glow discharge emission formed in air and other atmospheric constituent gases of 0.1-Torr pressure and a 30-m long column were surveyed using the technique of Fourier spectroscopy. Several features hitherto unobserved were detected in our survey study.
