Refractivity of Nitrogen Gas in the Vacuum Ultraviolet

Published

Author(s)

Ulf Griesmann, John H. Burnett

Abstract

We have measured the refractivity of nitrogen gas in the ultraviolet and vacuum ultraviolet using a Fourier transform spectrometer. A new two-term Sellmeier formula for the standard refractivity between 145 nm and 270 nm is derived.
