COMMENTS: The report of D. E. Robbins has been published in

JPL Publication 77-12, pp. 255-257

The cross section measurements (at 2, 4, and 6 nm intervals) were carried out utilizing a monochromator to provide UV radiation with a 0.07 nm bandwidth and, as a source of UV radiation, a lamp which produced a discharge in H2 gas

The data are to be found also in the review of

D. Gillotay and P.C. Simon, "Ultraviolet absorption cross-sections of photoactive species of stratospheric interest. Part 1 : The Halocarbons.," Aeronomica Acta A 356, 1-173 (1990)
