NAME: 1,1,2,2-tetrafluoro-1,2-dichloroethane (CFC-114)
AUTHOR(YEAR): Robbins(1976)
T: 295K
λ: 174-214nm
BIBLIOGRAPHY: D.E. Robbins, "UV photoabsorption cross section for halocarbons", Int. Conf. Stratosphere and Related Problems, Logan (USA), 1976
COMMENTS: The report of D. E. Robbins has been published in JPL Publication 77-12, pp. 255-257

The cross section measurements (at 2 nm intervals) were carried out utilizing a monochromator to provide UV radiation with a 0.07 nm bandwidth and, as a source of UV radiation, a lamp which produced a discharge in H2 gas

The data are to be found also in the reviews of

D. Gillotay and P.C. Simon, "Ultraviolet absorption cross-sections of photoactive species of stratospheric interest. Part 1 : The Halocarbons.," Aeronomica Acta A 356, 1-173 (1990), and
