Abstract

All previously published libraries of infrared mineral spectra are in the form of transmittance.  Reflectance spectra are, however, more useful for remote sensing and some potential laboratory applications, such as the use of an infrared microscope for mineral identification on polished sections. This note points out that construction of a new library of infrared (2.1-25.0 μm) mineral spectra is in progress. Both transmittance and reflectance measurements of a selection of 63 different, well-characteized minerals have been published to date. These data are available in both hard copy and digital form.
