Abstract

The near infrared absorption spectrum of liquid water at 20°C has been reinvestigated using a PbS cell detector system. The total spectral range investigated was from 0.70 to 2.50μ. A curve is included which shows five prominent absorption bands at 0.76, 0.97, 1.19, 1.45, and 1.94μ; and a table gives experimental results of water absorption at 20°C.
