The abundances of ices in planetary environments have historically been obtained through measurements of near-infrared absorption features (λ = 1.0– 2.5 µm), and near-IR transmission measurements of materials present in the in-terstellar medium are becoming more common. For transmission measurements, the band strength (or absorption intensity) of an absorption feature must be known in order to determine the column density of an ice component. In the experiments presented here, we have measured… CONTINUE READING
