Augmenting Infrared Blackbody Radiation Theory with Raman Spectrometry

This diagram shows the quantum predicted spectra of the infrared atmosphere. It distinguishes between the thermoelectric (IR) and the Raman active spectra. It also shows the 19th century derived 'blackbody' curve for the Sun (b) and the Earth (c). The curve 'a' is the 20-century correction curve derived by Raman spectroscopy. This curve is my work and I aim to change radiation and greenhouse theory with it. Raman spectrometers through the Boltzmann constant measure the temperature of the shown molecules. All matter radiates and that includes the gases of the atmosphere.

In my two papers( Quantum Mechanics and Raman Spectroscopy Refute Greenhouse Theory and The Greenhouse Gases and Infrared Radiation Misconceived by Thermoelectric Transducers ) I expose and address this discrepancy. I call it a systematic error that has played itself out over the last 160 years; Raman spectroscopy had solved it.

  1. I am very impressed with your "discovery" As I argue it out with people who seem to know more than me I was using the N2-CO2 laser argument but found a wikipedia article on the Carbon Dioxide laser that explains the "N2 collisionally de-excites by transferring its vibrational mode energy to the CO2 molecule, causing the carbon dioxide to excite to its {v3(1)} (asymmetric stretch) vibrational mode quantum state. The CO
    2 then radiatively emits at either 10.6 μm"

    This appears to conflict with your interpretation.

    Where do I go from here?

  2. Hi Henry, sorry for the delay in response. I have thought long and hard over this and have settled with at least the N2 CO2 laser shows N2 absorbs where it is assumed in the atmosphere not to. I have also found it works for photons too. I am drawing up an experiment to test all this, but I don't think it needs to be colisions, especially when we know these gases all have very low conductivity values and that all matter radiates. Cheers, Blair
