The OH strecthing fundamental of methanol
The highly congested band-center region of the OH stretching fundamental of methanol has been investigated using color center laser spectroscopy. Analysis of this region is essentially hopeless by normal absorption spectroscopy with Doppler limited resolution, but the spectral simplifications observed in Stark modulation absorption spectroscopy of the room-temperature gas and in simple absorption spectroscopy in a pulsed supersonic slit jet make possible the assignment of rotational structure in this region. © 1990.
