Sensitivity Issues in Step-Scan FT-IR Spectrometry

It is the large frequency separation between adjacent spectral elements that produces the excellent noise immunity of rapid-scan FT-IR. Jim Chao really hit the nail on the head when he pointed this out in 1987. It is precisely because rapid-scan works so well that we have overlooked the root problems in step-scan for so long.
