NAME: ammonia
AUTHOR(YEAR): Burton(1993)
T: 298K
λ: 6.2-225nm(e,e)
BIBLIOGRAPHY: G.R. Burton, W.F. Chan, G. Cooper, and C.E. Brion, "The electronic absorption spectrum of NH3 in the valence shell discrete and continuum regions. Absolute oscillator-strengths for photoabsorption (5-200 eV)", Chem. Phys. 177, 217-231 (1993); DOI: 10.1016/0301-0104(93)80191-B
COMMENTS: Measured by dipole (e,e) spectroscopy; energies E (in eV) and differential oscillator strengths df/dE (in 10-2 eV-1) converted to wavelengths and absorption cross sections,
σ (in 10-18 cm2 molecule-1) = 109.75 df/dE (in eV-1)
