Abstract : An image orthicon detection and recording system was adapted for making spectroscopic measurements in shock tube emission studies. The system provides greater sensitivity than film and permits electronic control of both the timing and the duration of the exposure. The linear response with light intensity and the immediate recording of the output on an oscilloscope trace make the system a convenient diagnostic tool. A description of the system as well as quantitative spectroscopic data obtained with it are presented. (Author)
