Cavity-ringdown spectroscopy is an emerging method for making high sensitivity absorption measurements with gas-phase samples. This volume, the first devoted to the method, covers the history, theory, and numerous applications. Written by leaders in the field, it is a comprehensive guide to current methods and ongoing research.

"Deals with a new method for measuring trace absorption, particularly with gas-phase samples. It monitors the exponential decay of radiation in an optical cavity, which for a given wavelength varies according to the absorption coefficient of the gas in the cavity. The 15 papers, from an October 1997 gathering in Irvine, California, examine such aspects as mode formation, dispersion, Fourier transform and polarization-dependent spectroscopy, polyatomic radicals in low pressure flames, kinetic studies of aromatic radical reactions, and studying dynamics between and within molecules."--SciTech Book News "Deals with a new method for measuring trace absorption, particularly with gas-phase samples.
