T: 298K
λ: 12.4-206.6nm
BIBLIOGRAPHY: A.C.A. Souza and S.K. Srivastava, "Photoabsorption cross sections of Ar, N2 and Si(CH3)4 from electron energy loss spectroscopy", J. Braz. Chem. Soc. 5, 59-65 (1994); DOI: 10.5935/0103-5053.19940010
COMMENTS: The electron energy loss (EEL) spectrum of Si(CH3)4 measured in a crossed electron beam-molecular beam collision geometry has been converted to the photoabsorption spectrum, and the relative absorption cross sections have then been normalized to the absorption cross section at 65 nm measured by

Data for photon energies from 6 to 100 eV have been converted to absorption cross sections vs. wavelength
