AUTHOR(YEAR): Cooper(1995)
T: 298K
λ: 6.2-207nm(e,e)
BIBLIOGRAPHY: G. Cooper, G.R. Burton, and C.E. Brion, "Absolute UV and soft X-ray photoabsorption of acetylene by high-resolution dipole (e,e) spectroscopy", J. Electron Spectrosc. Relat. Phenom. 73, 139-148 (1995); DOI: 10.1016/0368-2048(94)02271-2

Measured by dipole (e,e) spectroscopy; energies E (in eV) and differential oscillator strengths df/dE (in 10-2 eV-1) converted to wavelengths and absorption cross sections,
σ (in 10-18 cm2 molecule-1) = 109.75 df/dE (in eV-1)
