Energy Absorption by N2O in the 4 to 14 eV Region



R Huebner, Robert Celotta, S Mielczarek, C Kuyatt


Apparent oscillator-strength values for transitions in the 4 to 14 eV region in nitrous oxide have been derived from electron energy-loss measurements. Detailed comparison with photoabsorption measurements in the ultraviolet region indicates a weak transition below the 1Δ} larr}1 Σ+ transition at 6.8 eV not observed optically. This analysis also provides oscillator-strength values in the region between 11.5 and 12.4 eV, where no quantitative photoabsorption data are available.
