Abstract : A method is described for obtaining optical spectra of solids subjected to short duration pulsed magnetic fields of the order of 300 kilo-oersteds. A spectral region is scanned repetitively every 28 microsec by a moving slit and detected photoelectrically, making it possible to measure wavelength and intensity changes of spectral features as a function of magnetic field. Provision is made for cooling the sample to liquid helium temperature. The Zeeman effect of the septuplet-F-0 to quintuplet-D-2 transition of Eu(3+) in europium tungstate is used as a demonstration of the technique. (Author)
