|Smoke and Mirrors: Ultra-Rapid-Scan FT-IR
This is the first interferogram processed, early in 1997. At the time
these data were measured, the high speed disk mirror was not yet finished. The rotating
mirror was then a 100-mm PyrexÒ flat. These data were acquired
in approximately 40 ms while the disk was rotated at 720 rpm. For safety reasons, it was
not spun faster because it was held in place by double-sided ScotchTM tape.
