Abstract
THIS PROPOSAL IS TO INVESTIGATE THE FEASIBILITY OF UTILIZING LUMINESCENCE QUENCHING FOR MEASUREMENT OF RELATIVE HUMIDITY AT TEMPERATURES FOUND IN ARCTIC ENVIRONMENTS. IT IS BASED ON THE OBSERVATION THAT CERTAIN FLUORESCENT AND PHOSPHORESCENT COMPOUNDS, IMMOBILIZED ON SPECIFIC SUBSTRATES, SHOW A LUMINESCENT RESPONSE WHOSE INTENSITY IS PROPORTIONAL TO RELATIVE HUMIDITY OR THE PROPORTION OF WATER VAPOR PRESENT IN THE ATMOSPHERE.
