DATAFILE: N2O_RomandMayence(1949)_291K_139-233nm.txt
NAME: nitrous oxide
AUTHOR(YEAR): RomandMayence(1949)
T: 291K
λ: 139-233nm
BIBLIOGRAPHY: J. Romand and J. Mayence, "Spectre d'absorption de l'oxide azoteux gazeux dans la région de Schumann", Compt. Rend. Acad. Sci. Paris 228, 998-1000 (1949)
COMMENTS: Absorption spectra have been obtained by photographic spectrometry

Extinction coefficients have been digitized from the figure and converted to absorption cross sections (conversion factor 3.8235×10-21) vs. wavelengths

Values for the two absorption maxima are given in the text:

λ = 145 nm:
log ε = 3.06, ε = 1150 L mol-1 cm-1, i.e., σ = 4.397×10-18 cm2 molecule-1,

λ = 184 nm :
log ε = 1.48, ε = 30.5 L mol-1 cm-1, i.e., σ = 1.17×10-18 cm2 molecule-1
