Abstract

"This investigation was begun with the idea of obtaining the emission and absorption spectra of NaCl and KCl in the region between 100 A and 1000 A. From these data, it is hoped that useful information concerning the energy levels of these two substances may be obtained.

The vacuum ultraviolet region is rather difficult to investigate because of the necessity of removing all air, lenses and other absorbing material from the light path. Many writers have enumerated the problems involved and some have indicated that much work still needs to be done in the vacuum ultraviolet.

In order to do some experimental work in this region, Chapin constructed, in the spring of 1950, a grazing incidence, grating vacuum spectrograph. Chamberlain took over the project in September, 1950 and completed and put into operation the spectrograph.

As a companion project, Woodle built a power supply and designed a source tube to work in conjunction with this spectrograph.

From 1951 to the summer of 1953, Hofer improved and added some new accessories to the spectrograph"--Introduction, pages 1-2.
