We use the spectral synthesis code Cloudy to tabulate the properties of gas for an extensive range in redshift (z=0 to 9), temperature (log T [K] = 1 to 9.5), metallicity (log Z/$\mathrm{Z}_{\odot}$ = -4 to +0.5, Z=0), and density (log $n_{\mathrm{H}}$ [$\mathrm{cm}^{-3}$] = -8 to +6). This therefore includes gas with properties characteristic of the interstellar, circumgalactic and intergalactic media. The gas is exposed to a redshift-dependent UV/X-ray background, while for the self-shielded… Expand
