Abstract : New measurements of CO2 laser wavelengths in the 9 micrometer and 10 micrometer bands are reported accurate to about 2X10 to the minus 8th power. These are used in combination with Evenson's recently reported frequency values to derive a new value for the velocity of light and to update Chang's CO2 frequency and wavelength tables. (Author)
