Abstract : The report summarizes the analytical services supplied on Air Force originated problems in support of their in-house programs and research programs in vibrational spectroscopy and atomic absorption spectroscopy. In the area of vibration spectroscopy, the infrared spectral study of amino acids was completed, a new program on methyl ester began, designs of far infrared liquid cells were investigated, a device to modify the chart presentation of the far infrared instrument constructed, and the second year of a three-year program on the spectra of halogen-containing materials was continued. Atomic absorption burner and nebulization designs were investigated to yield a system with increased sensitivity over that currently available. (Author)
