COMMENTS: The absorption cross sections and their temperature dependencies were determined employing a one meter, single beam, vacuum monochromator provided with interchangeable vacuum UV and UV photomultipliers, a deuterium light source, analog to digital circuitry, a computer controlled stepping motor drive for wavelength control, and computerized data acquisition

The absorption cross section were measured at 0.1-nm intervals between 160 and 240 nm and at 0.5-nm intervals between 240 and 350 nm

Averages over 10-nm intervals of the spectrum are listed in the paper
