Abstract:

Calculated atmospheric absorption coefficients are reported at 62 HF, 104 DF, and 6 Iodine laser line frequencies. Results are tabulated at 16 atmospheric layers for 50 relative humidity conditions ranging from sea-level to 15 km altitude, Results of measurements made on seven HF lines at WSMSRASL agree well with these results. Documentation is provided describing the data base, the laser line frequencies, and the atmospheric model. Net absorption coefficients are reported for several representative laser output power-spectral distributions.
