Abstract

This calibration method, developed for a Perkin-Elmer Model 12 spectrometer, covers the regions 5 to 15µ (NaCl) and 2 to 5µ (LiF). Standardized techniques lowered the standard deviation of the spectrometer itself to 0.10 cm<sup>-1</sup> at 1000 cm<sup>-1</sup>. The formula <i>T<sub>i</sub></i> = <i>T</i><sub>0</sub>+ (<i>a</i>/ν<sub>i</sub><sup>2</sup> - ν<sub>0</sub><sup>2</sup>) is shown to be analogous in form and method of solution to the Hartmann dispersion formula, λ<sub><i>i</i></sub>=λ<sub>0</sub>+(<i>c</i>/<i>d</i><sub>0</sub>-<i>d<sub>i</sub></i>). Thus Hartmann formula techniques have been applied to the calibration equation. Solutions are readily handled on a calculating machine; graphical interpolations are obviated. The results have standard deviation of 0.28 cm<sup>-1</sup> at 1000 cm<sup>-1</sup>.
