DATAFILE: N2O_Zelikoff(1953)_298K_121.9-137.5nm.txt
NAME: nitrous oxide
AUTHOR(YEAR): Zelikoff(1953)
T: 298K
λ: 121.9-137.5nm
BIBLIOGRAPHY: M. Zelikoff, K. Watanabe, and E.C.Y. Inn, "Absorption coefficients of gases in the vacuum ultraviolet. Part II. Nitrous oxide", J. Chem. Phys. 21, 1643-1647 (1953); DOI: 10.1063/1.1698636
COMMENTS: Absorption measurements using a vacuum monochromator with a band width of 0.085 nm and a hydrogen discharge light source

Absorption coefficients k (atm, 273 K)-1 cm-1 (base e) plotted in Fig. 2 have been digitized and converted to absorption cross sections (conversion factor 3.72×10-20)
