COMMENTS: Absorption measurement using a Hilger fluorite prism spectrograph with a hydrogen lamp, and photometrical analysis of the photographic plates

Extinction coefficients for the absorption maxima listed in Table I have been converted to absorption cross sections (conversion factor 3.8235×10-21)
