Abstract : The dependence of the total absorptance of the bands of carbon monoxide near 4.7 microns and 2.3 microns, and of methane near 3.3 microns, on absorber concentration, pressure, and temperature was measured. Data were taken for absorber pressures between 100 and 1000 mm Hg, and at temperatures up to 400 C, for a fixed absorber path length of 30.6 cm. The nature and possible reasons for the observed temperature dependence of the total absorptance are discussed. (Author)
