An infrared spectrophotometer and its use for the isotopic analysis of heavy water

  • R. Skjöldebrand


An infra-red spectrophotometer for the region 2–4 μ was constructed for the isotopic analysis of heavy water. It proved useful in the concentration regions from 0.015 to 3 w/w % D2O and from 90 to 99.80 w/w % D2O. It provides a very fast and highly accurate method for isotopic analysis.
