On a Remarkable Case of Uneven Distribution of Light in a Diffraction Grating Spectrum

When the light is incident on the opposite side of the normal from the spectrum we find the red and orange extremely brilliant up t o a certain wave-length, where the intensity suddenly drops almost to zero, the fall occurring, as I have said, within a range not greater than the distance between the D lines

  • The few photographs which I have taken and which are reproduced, were made on some old orthochromatic plates, without any especial appliances, the plates being applied to the end of the spectrometer tube, while the slit was illuminated with a Nernst lamp, which makes the best source of light possible when a continuous spectrum is required
