DATAFILE: N2O_Barrus(1979)_298K_2.056-2.450nm.txt
NAME: nitrous oxide
AUTHOR(YEAR): Barrus(1979)
T: 298K
λ: 2.056-2.450nm
BIBLIOGRAPHY: D.M. Barrus, R.L. Blake, A.J. Burek, K.C. Chambers, and A.L. Pregenzer, "K-shell photoabsorption coefficients of O2, CO2, CO, and N2O", Phys. Rev. A 20, 1045-1061 (1979); DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevA.20.1045
COMMENTS: Measurements around the K edge of oxygen at photon energies of 506-603 eV using an x-ray source and a spectrometer with a resolution better than 1 eV

The mass absorption coefficients vs. photon energies (listed in Table V) have been converted to absorption cross sections (conversion factor 7.3092×10-23) vs. wavelengths
