Room Temperature SO2 Cross Sections from 220 - 325 nm

A series of measurements were made of the SO2 absorption bands from 220 nm (45,454 cm-1) to 325 nm (30,750 cm-1).
Investigation of these bands was conducted at room temperature and high (0.0005 nm or 0.06 cm-1) to medium (0.0032 nm or 0.48 cm-1) resolution depending on the presence of significant fine absorption structure.

The DATA FILE (3MB) is available in two column ascii. Units are 10-19 cm2.
