COMMENTS: Differential absorption cross section Δσ at the (10,0) band head of the A 2Π ← X 2Π transition, i.e., the difference between the cross sections at the peak at 279.67nm and at the valley of the absorption spectrum at 279.56 nm, measured using cavity ring-down spectroscopy; Cl2O photolysis at 248 nm was the ClO source

Measurements at temperatures between 200 and 296 K, a simulation of the relative temperature dependence of the ClO absorption cross sections (using available spectroscopic parameters) over the range 190-320 K, and an empirical polynomial fit of the temperature dependence yielded

Δσ(T)/Δσ(296 K) = 3.5234 - 0.014486 T + 2.0137×10-5 T2
