NAME: ammonia
AUTHOR(YEAR): MetzgerCook(1964)
T: 298K
λ: 55-101nm
BIBLIOGRAPHY: P.H. Metzger and G.R. Cook, "On the continuous absorption, photoionization, and fluorescence of H2O, NH3, CH4, C2H2, C2H4, and C2H6 in the 600- to 1000-Å region", J. Chem. Phys. 41, 642-648 (1964); DOI: 10.1063/1.1725939
COMMENTS: Absorption measurements at a spectral resolution ot 0.05 nm using the Hopfield continuum light source

The absorption coefficients k (atm, 273 K)-1 cm-1 (base e) as plotted in Fig. 7 have been digitized and converted to absorption cross sections (conversion factor 3.72×10-20)
