Title: HIGH-RESOLUTION FOURIER TRANSFORM SPECTROSCOPY OF Nb i IN THE NEAR-INFRARED

Abstract

In this study, a Fourier Transform spectrum of Niobium (Nb) is investigated in the near-infrared spectral range from 6000 to 12,000 cm{sup −1} (830–1660 nm). The Nb spectrum is produced using a hollow cathode discharge lamp in an argon atmosphere. Both Nb and Ar spectral lines are visible in the spectrum. A total of 110 spectral lines are assigned to the element Nb. Of these lines, 90 could be classified as transitions between known levels of atomic Nb. From these classified Nb i transitions, 27 have not been listed in literature previously. Additionally, 8 lines are classified for the first time.

  • A high-resolution spectrum of lanthanum has been recorded by a Fourier Transform spectrometer in the wavelength range from 833 nm to 1666 nm (6000 cm{sup –1} to 12,000 cm{sup –1}) using as light source a hollow cathode lamp operated with argon as the discharge carrier gas. In total, 2386 spectral lines were detected in this region, of which 555 lines could be classified as La I transitions and 10 lines as La II transitions. All La II transitions and 534 of these La I transitions were classified for the first time, and 6 of the La II transitions and 433more » of the classified La I transitions appear to be new lines, which could not be found in the literature. The corresponding energy level data of classified lines are given. Additionally, 430 lines are assigned as Ar I lines and 394 as Ar II lines, of which 179 and 77, respectively, were classified for the first time. All 77 classified Ar II transitions as well as 159 of the classified Ar I transitions are new lines. Furthermore, the wavenumbers of 997 unclassified spectral lines were determined, 235 of which could be assigned as La lines, because of their hyperfine pattern. The remaining 762 lines may be either unclassified Ar lines or unresolved and unclassified La lines with only one symmetrical peak with an FWHM in the same order of magnitude as the Ar lines. The accuracy of the wavenumber for the classified lines with signal-to-noise-ratio higher than four is better than 0.006 cm{sup –1} which corresponds to an accuracy of 0.0004 nm at 830 nm and 0.0017 nm at 1660 nm, respectively.« less
  • The infrared absorption spectra of neat CO, NO, CH/sub 4/, C/sub 2/H/sub 2/, CH/sub 3/CCH, and CHF/sub 3/ in supersonic free jet expansions have been recorded at apodized resolutions of up to 0.0004 cm/sup -1/ (fwhm) and wavenumbers ranging from 1000 to 3400 cm/sup -1/. The line widths are found to be essentially Doppler limited. Rotational temperatures as low as 6 K for CO and 10-50 K for the other gases have been determined from the spectra. Electronic (NO), vibrational (CH/sub 3/CCH), and nuclear spin (CH/sub 4/, C/sub 2/H/sub 2/) relaxation is discussed as well. In those cases rotational andmore » electronic relaxation is fast, vibrational relaxation incomplete and nuclear spin symmetry conservation perfect to within the authors accuracy. The aspect of simplification of infrared spectra and nuclear by jet cooling is investigated, in particular for the extremely complex bands of CHF/sub 3/.« less

  • This paper describes an optical setup built to record Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) absorption spectra in an atmospheric pressure plasma with a spatial resolution of 2 mm. The overall system consisted of three basic parts: (1) optical components located within the FTIR sample compartment, making it possible to define the size of the infrared beam (2 mm Multiplication-Sign 2 mm over a path length of 50 mm) imaged at the site of the plasma by (2) an optical interface positioned between the spectrometer and the plasma reactor. Once through the plasma region, (3) a retro-reflector module, located behind the plasmamore » reactor, redirected the infrared beam coincident to the incident path up to a 45 Degree-Sign beamsplitter to reflect the beam toward a narrow-band mercury-cadmium-telluride detector. The antireflective plasma-coating experiments performed with ammonia and silane demonstrated that it was possible to quantify 42 and 2 ppm of these species in argon, respectively. In the case of ammonia, this was approximately three times less than this gas concentration typically used in plasma coating experiments while the silane limit of quantification was 35 times lower. Moreover, 70% of the incoming infrared radiation was focused within a 2 mm width at the site of the plasma, in reasonable agreement with the expected spatial resolution. The possibility of reaching this spatial resolution thus enabled us to measure the gaseous precursor consumption as a function of their residence time in the plasma.« less
  • To improve paint adhesion and extend protection of carbon (C) steel surfaces exposed to a variety of environmental conditions, these surfaces typically are phosphatized. These iron phosphate-based conversion coatings require a chromic acid sealing rinse for enhanced performance. However, the use of chromate increasingly is being limited because of the safety problems of handling carcinogenic chromate solutions and because of environmental concerns. Tellurium-based conversion coatings grown at two different pH values were characterized by X-ray absorption near-edge structure (XANES) and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy. At pH 3.5, a brown coating formed that contained reduced forms of Te as Te(0)more » and Te(IV). At pH 5.5, a colorless coating formed that contained traces of Te as Te(IV) and possibly Te(VI). Results suggested that iron is soluble at low pH values and undergoes redox reactions with telluric acid, while at higher pH values, telluric acid thickens the passive film on Fe.« less
