NAME: nitrous oxide
AUTHOR(YEAR): Nee(1999)
T: 298K
λ: 138.1-158.3nm
BIBLIOGRAPHY: J.B. Nee, J.C. Yang, P.C. Lee, X.Y. Wang, and C.T. Kuo, "Photoabsorption cross sections of N2O in 100-220 nm", Chinese J. Phys. 37, 172-180 (1999)
COMMENTS: Absorption measurements between 100 and 220 nm at resolutions of 0.05-0.5 nm using synchrotron radiation as a light source

The listed absorption cross sections are measured for the vibrational progression (v' = 4-21) in the 140-160 nm band corresponding to the C 1Π state

Fig. 1 shows the entire spectrum at 100-220 nm, Figs. 2-4 show details of the spectum at 160-220, 138-160, and 100-120 nm
