NAME: nitrous oxide
AUTHOR(YEAR): Rabalais(1971)
T: 298K
λ: 122.25-214.65nm
BIBLIOGRAPHY: J.W. Rabalais, J.M. McDonald, V. Scherr, and S.P. McGlynn, "Electronic spectroscopy of isoelectronic molecules. II. Linear triatomic groupings containing sixteen valence electrons", Chem. Rev. 71, 73-108 (1971); DOI: 10.1021/cr60269a004
COMMENTS: Absorption spectra were recorded on Cary 14 and 15 and McPherson 225 (1-m) spectrophotomers, absorption pathlengths ranged from 0.1 to 10 cm

Extinction coefficients vs. wavenumber as plotted in Fig. 9 have been digitized and converted to absorption cross sections (conversion factor 3.8235×10-21) vs. wavelength
