Abstract

The radiant energy from a quartz mercury lamp has been compared with the energy from a globar source. It was found that the energy of the mercury lamp was about six times greater at 50 cm-1 and about three times greater at 100 cm-1. Between 20 and 50 cm-1 very little energy is emitted by the globar. The measurements were made on a Michelson type interferometer operating under the same conditions for each source. Several materials were measured in a search for filters for the far-infrared region. Magnesium oxide was found to be opaque to 110 cm-1 in layers of 0.6-mm thickness and then increased rapidly in transmittance. A narrow absorption band is present at 112 cm-1 and causes the rapid increase in transmittance on its lowfrequency side. Other materials measured only increased appreciably in transmittance over wide regions of the spectrum.
