  Fourier transform spectroscopy
Fourier transform spectroscopy is a measurement technique whereby spectra are collected based on the response from a pulse of electromagnetic radiation.
Fourier transform spectroscopy is more sensitive and has a much shorter sampling time than conventional spectroscopic techniques.
Instead of varying the energy of the electromagnetic radiation, Fourier Transform spectroscopy exposes the sample to a single pulse of radiation and measures the response.

 Infrared spectroscopy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Infrared spectroscopy (IR Spectroscopy) is the subset of spectroscopy that deals with the Infrared part of the electromagnetic spectrum.
The resonant frequencies or vibrational frequencies are determined by the shape of the molecular potential energy surfaces, the masses of the atoms and, eventually by the associated vibronic coupling.
Performing a mathematical Fourier Transform on this signal results in a spectrum identical to that from conventional (dispersive) infrared spectroscopy.

 Wiley::Spectroscopy and the Fourier Transform
The growth of Fourier Transform spectroscopy over the last two decades has been nothing short of astounding especially since it lay dormant for the 8 decades prededing this development.
As a result many Fourier transform spectrometers are placed in labs and used by people who do not understand their operation.
Similarly the Fourier transform itself is presented in a graphical rather than mathematical fashion so that it is easily grasped.

 Fourier-Transform Microwave Spectroscopy for Chemical Analysis
One such instrument suggested to have significant potential for gas analysis is the Fourier-transform microwave (FTMW) spectrometer, which uses microwave radiation and the time-domain techniques of nuclear-magnetic-resonance (NMR) spectroscopy to record the rotational spectrum of a molecule in the microwave spectral region, i.e., between approximately 6 GHz and 40 GHz.
FTMW spectroscopy was developed approximately 20 years ago to measure the rotational spectra of molecules and exotic chemical species such, as dimers, hydrogen-bonded complexes, and free radicals, to extract fundamental molecular properties.
The technique operates by injecting a pulse of a gas sample into a high-Q microwave cavity situated in a vacuum chamber, where it is interrogated by microwave radiation.
