NAME: water
AUTHOR(YEAR): Katayama(1973)
T: 298K
λ: 70.00-98.08nm(max,min)
BIBLIOGRAPHY: D.H. Katayama, R.E. Huffman, and C.L O'Bryan, "Absorption and photoionization cross sections for H2O and D2O in the vacuum ultraviolet", J. Chem. Phys. 59, 4309-4319 (1973); DOI: 10.1063/1.1680627
COMMENTS: Absorption measurements between 58 and 105 nm using the helium continuum was as a background with a bandwidth of approximately 0.05 nm

The listed values are the cross sections for the most prominent observed band maxima in the ionization continuum region (except the values for 80.00, 86.10, 90.50, 93.00, and 97.00 nm, which are the minima between the peaks)
