DATAFILE: N2O4_Bass(1976)_250-299K_185-390nm.txt
NAME: dinitrogen tetraoxide
AUTHOR(YEAR): Bass(1976)
T: 250-299K
λ: 185-390nm
BIBLIOGRAPHY: A.M. Bass, A.E. Ledford, and A.H. Laufer, "Extinction coefficients of NO2 and N2O4", J. Res. Natl. Bur. Stand. 80A, 143-166 (1976); DOI: 10.6028/jres.080A.017
COMMENTS: Absorption measurements at intervals of 0.125 nm with a spectral resolution of 0.015 to 0.04 nm

No temperature effect on the spectrum was observed

Absorption coefficients k (atm, 273 K)-1 cm-1 (base e) listed in Table 3 have been converted to absorption cross sections (conversion factor 3.72×10-20)
