NAME: ammonia
AUTHOR(YEAR): SutoLee(1983)
T: 298K
λ: 121.567nm
BIBLIOGRAPHY: M. Suto and L.C. Lee, "Photodissociation of NH3 at 106-200 nm", J. Chem. Phys. 78, 4515-4522 (1983); DOI: 10.1063/1.445344
COMMENTS: Absorption measurements in the 106-206 nm region using synchrotron radiation as a light source; spectral resolution 0.2 nm

The spectra at 106-144 nm, 142-174 nm, and 172-206 nm are shown in Figs. 1, 2, and 3

The absorption cross section for the wavelength of the Lyman-α line has been estimated from Fig. 1 by
