Abstract:

The pure water vapor absorption spectra have been measured by the photoacoustic method in transparency microwindows near 6177 cm-1 at several pressures at a room temperature. Cross section of the water vapor continuum absorption has been determined to be (5.4 ± 0.8) × 10-24 × cm2 × mol.-1 × atm-1. This value is 4 times lower than the data known from FTS measurements and 20 times higher than the results obtained from CRDS measurements in this transparency window.

Keywords:

continuum absorption, water vapor, atmospheric windows, photoacoustic spectrometer
