NAME: water
AUTHOR(YEAR): Harrison(1959)
T: 295K
λ: 167nm(max)
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

The extinction coefficient for the maximum of the absorption curve (as listed in Table 1) has been converted to absorption cross sections (conversion factor 3.8235×10-21)
