Abstract:

This study was undertaken to obtain photolysis parameters for the presence of NO2 hnu yields NO O, which could be supplied to the modeling of that region. The absolute absorption coefficients for NO2 were measured at 297, 247, 226, and 204 K and are tabulated at 1-nm intervals over the 390-420 nm photolysis cut-off region. Experimental uncertainties range from 2 at room temperature at 420 nm to 15 at 204 K, and mainly fall in the 4-7 range.
