NAME: water
AUTHOR(YEAR): Harrison(1959)
T: 295K
λ: 156.3-182.9nm
BIBLIOGRAPHY: A.J. Harrison, B.J. Cederholm, and M.A. Terwilliger, "Absorption of acyclic oxygen compounds in the vacuum ultraviolet. I. Alcohols", J. Chem. Phys. 30, 355-356 (1959); DOI: 10.1063/1.1729952
COMMENTS: Absorption measurements using a Hilger fluorite prism spectrograph with a hydrogen lamp, and photometrical analysis of the photographic plates

Extinction coefficients vs. wavenumber depicted in Fig. 1 have been digitized and converted to absorption cross sections (conversion factor 3.8235×10-21) vs. wavelength
