COMMENTS: Isotopically substituted N2O species: 14N15NO

Absorption measurements with a double beam/single detector setup
1- at MAX-lab in Lund, Sweden, using synchrotron radiation together with a 1-m vacuum monochromator (bandwidth ∼ 0.7 nm),
2- for λ > 196.8 nm at the Department of Chemistry at the University of Copenhagen using a deuterium continuum lamp as light source and a 1-m UV/VIS monochromator (bandwidth 1.1 nm)
