Abstract : Analyses of simulator atmosphere samples were attempted using microwave spectroscopy. The samples were obtained directly from the simulator and were not subject to any further treatment before analysis was attempted. The results indicated absence of microwave absorbing gases in concentrations ranging from approximately 5 to 5000 p.p.m. with the exception of water vapor. The direct sample technic for microwave analysis of the trace contaminant concentration in simulator atmospheres appears unfeasible with present technics and instrumentation of microwave spectroscopy.
