A long-path-length transmission cell has been used to measure the attenuation coefficients of purified H2O and D2O at various wavelengths between 250 and 580 nm. The principles governing the procedures and corrections for various sources of light attenuation in the transmission cell components are discussed. Detailed chemical histories of the H2O and D2O samples are given. The measured attenuation coefficients of H2O are lower than those of many previous determinations and, where comparable… CONTINUE READING
