So, when patterns of dark absorption lines with just those spacings show up in the spectra of quasars, astronomers conclude that an intervening gas cloud contains particular types of atoms.
Note that there are absorption lines from various atmospheric gasses, but there are major transmission widows in the near-, mid-, and far-IR ranges.
Amos sings, ``My absorption lines, they are frayed and I fear.
Furthermore, infrared DIAL systems are preferred because they are highly sensitive to the laser energy, are relatively eye safe, and more importantly, are in the spectral range where most molecular-specific absorption lines occur.
SIRILAS semiconductor lasers, with an efficiency of more than 50 percent, are ideal pumping sources because their output can be precisely tuned to the absorption lines of the solid-state laser materials.
By placing a gas cell between their spectrograph and the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope, they superimpose narrow absorption lines onto the observed stellar spectra.
By comparing the positions of the absorption lines measured by the telescope with the positions measured in the laboratory, they can tell whether alpha is different near the white dwarf.
Evolution of galaxies and the intergalactic matter can be studied by looking at quasar absorption lines.
This data can be displayed through absorption lines and by the relative strength shown, the D/H line can be evaluated.
In the course of observing quasars, astronomers have discovered clouds of hydrogen gas that make their presence known by absorbing some of the quasar's radiation, creating a thicket of absorption lines.
This capability allows design engineers to precisely pump narrow absorption lines in solid-state and fiber lasers with little or no active temperature control.

In Fleming's classification, an A star displayed only hydrogen absorption lines in its spectrum, while a B star also displayed prominent Orion lines, named after the absorption lines found in many stars near the Orion constellation and later discovered to come from the element helium.
