Abstract
Photoabsorption cross sections of sulfur dioxide over a range of temperatures are required to interpret observations and to support models of the atmospheres of Io and Venus. We report high-resolution (lambda/Delta lambda approximate to 450,000) photoabsorption cross-section measurements by Fourier transform spectrometry of SO2 at 160 K in the wavelength region 199 to 220 nm, which encompasses the strongest features in the prominent (C) over tilde (1) B-2 -(X) over tilde (1)A(1) system. Our results are compared with literature values obtained at lower resolutions and with 295 K cross sections recorded earlier with the same instrument.
