NAME: water
AUTHOR(YEAR): WatanabeZelikoff(1953)
T: 298K
λ: 121.4-185.7nm
BIBLIOGRAPHY: K. Watanabe and M. Zelikoff, "Absorption coefficients of water vapor in the vacuum ultraviolet", J. Opt. Soc. Am. 43, 753-755 (1953); DOI: 10.1364/JOSA.43.000753
COMMENTS: Absorption measuremets at a resolution of ~0.1 nm ta hydrogen discharge tube as a light source

Absorption coefficients k (atm, 273K)-1 cm-1 (base e) plotted in Fig. 1 have been digitized and converted to absorption cross sections (conversion factor 3.72×10-20)
