Visible Spectra
Our extensive collection of single crystal transmission data in the 300 - 2500 nm range.  
 Infrared Spectra      (under development - several sections are ready now)

KBr pellet data in the 4000 - 200 cm-1 range.

OH-region single crystal data in the 4000 - 3000 cm-1 range.

Far-Infrared : Both ATR and Polyethylene pellet data are available.  ATR-Far-IR data for samples that are part of the RRUFF project are available on the RRUFF website.

External Databases

Reflectance data
Thermal Emission Spectra
Raman Spectra. Our data are now part of the RRUFF project, a large composite database that combines the American Mineralogist Crystal Structure Database with thousands of Raman spectra obtained at Arizona State University and Caltech. This database has chemical analyses, X-ray diffraction parameters, Raman spectra, and, infrared spectra and, ultimately, other types of data in a convenient, single database. Mössbauer Spectra.
Compare the emission (from ASU), reflection (from JPL) and transmission spectra of quartz.
