Submillimeter and THz Detection of Chemical-Warfare Agents in Air

December 31, 2004
Vyacheslav B. Podobedov, R J. Lavrich, T M. Korter, Gerald T. Fraser, David F. Plusquellic, A C. Samuels
Experimental measurements and theoretical calculations were performed to assess the potential for using continuous-wave submillimeter and THz (far-infrared) linear-absorption spectroscopies to detect chemical-warfare agents in air at ambient temperatures

Continuous-Wave Terahertz Spectroscopy of Plasmas and Biomolecules

March 1, 2004
David F. Plusquellic, T M. Korter, Gerald T. Fraser, R J. Lavrich, Eric C. Benck, C R. Bucher, Angela R. Hight Walker, J L. Domenech
Continuous-wave linear-absorption spectroscopy based on THz radiation generated by solid-state photomixers has been applied to the investigation of the dynamics of biomolecules in polyethylene matrices and to line shape studies of HF for diagnostics of

Conformational Analysis of the Jet-Cooled Peptide Mimetic Ethylacetamidoacetate from Torsion-Rotation Spectra

September 1, 2003
R J. Lavrich, Angela R. Hight Walker, David F. Plusquellic, I Kleiner, R D. Suenram, Jon T. Hougen, Gerald T. Fraser
Rotational spectra of two conformers of the dipeptide mimetic, ethyl acetamidoacetate, were measured in a molecular beam using a Fourier-transform microwave spectrometer. In each conformer, internal rotation of the acetyl methyl group gives rise to

Submillimeter-Wavelength Plasma Chemical Diagnostics for Semiconductor Manufacturing

September 1, 2003
Eric C. Benck, G Y. Golubiatnikow, Gerald T. Fraser, B Ji, S A. Motika, E J. Karwacki
Submillimeter-wavelength, linear-absorption spectroscopy has been applied to the chemical diagnostics of a reactive-ion etching plasma in a modified capacitively coupled Gaseous Electronics Conference (GEC) reactor. Approximately 1 mW of narrow-band (

Temperature and Flux Scales for Heat-Flux Sensor Calibration

September 1, 2003
A V. Murthy, D P. DeWitt, Benjamin K. Tsai, Gerald T. Fraser, Robert D. Saunders
Methodologies for calibrating heat-flux sensors designed for direct measurement of heat-transfer at a surface are presented. These sensors, extensively used in fire-test methods and aerospace applications, vary in range from a few kW/m2 to in excess of 500

Angular Response Characteristics of Ellipsoidal Radiometers

August 1, 2003
A V. Murthy, D P. DeWitt, Gerald T. Fraser
This paper presents an experimental study of the angular response of an ellipsoidal radiometer performed using a 25 mm diameter variable temperature blackbody as a radiant source. The radiometer consists of a highly reflective ellipsoidal cavity with a

Laboratory Studies of Oxygen Continuun Absorption

July 1, 2003
Y I. Baranov, Gerald T. Fraser, Walter J. Lafferty, B Mate, A A. Vigasin
Laboratory studies of the mid and near infrared collision-induced absorption bands of O2 are reviewed, with an emphasis on the 6.4 m and 1.27 m bands and on Ar, O2, N2, and CO2 collision partners. These absorption bands are important in the radiative
