Optical Modeling of Single Asian Dust and Marine Air Particles: A Comparison with Geometric Particle Shapes for Remote Sensing

Data provided by  National Institute of Standards and Technology

The project that produced these data involved the analysis and modeling of atmospheric Asian dust particles and background marine air particles collected in Hawaii, USA at the Mauna Loa Observatory (MLO) of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Individual heterogeneous dust particles were analyzed with focused ion-beam scanning electron microscopy and energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy.

Precision spectroscopy of nitrous oxide isotopocules with a cross-dispersed spectrometer and a mid-infrared frequency comb

Data provided by  National Institute of Standards and Technology

Data set from peer-reviewed publication: D. M. Bailey et al., Precision spectroscopy of nitrous oxide isotopocules with a cross-dispersed spectrometer and a mid-infrared frequency comb, Analytical Chemistry, 92, 13759-13766 (2020). As a potent greenhouse gas and an ozone depleting agent, nitrous oxide (N2O) plays a critical role in the global climate. Effective mitigation relies on understanding global sources and sinks, which can be supported through isotopic analysis.

Calculated Diffusivities for Water Isotopologues in Carbon Dioxide, Nitrogen, and the Atmosphere of Mars, and for Methane Isotopologues in Nitrogen Representing the Atmosphere of Titan

Data provided by  National Institute of Standards and Technology

Values are computed for the dilute-gas diffusivity of water isotopologues in N2, CO2, and their mixture at a composition representing the atmosphere of Mars, for standard conditions of 101.325 kPa and water mole fraction approaching zero. Values are similarly computed for the diffusivity of methane isotopologues in N2, representing the atmosphere of Titan. Calculations employ state-of-the-art intermolecular potentials and classical trajectory calculations as described in the paper by R. Hellmann and A.H.

Ideal-gas Thermochemical Properties for Carbon Dioxide and its Isotopologues Calculated from Partition Functions

Data provided by  National Institute of Standards and Technology

Tabulations at 1 K intervals from 1 K to 6000 K of the partition function and standard-state isobaric heat capacity, entropy, and enthalpy for the 12 natural isotopologues of CO2, along with their standard uncertainties. Calculations performed with a partition function constructed from spectroscopic and theoretical data as described in the Appendix of the paper by A.H. Harvey, S.A. Tashkun, and E.W. Lemmon, to be submitted to J. Phys. Chem. Ref. Data. Note that the model does not account for dissociation of the CO2 molecule, making the results incomplete above approximately 3500 K.

Absolute 13C/12C Isotope Amount Ratio for Vienna Pee Dee Belemnite from Infrared Absorption Spectroscopy

Data provided by  National Institute of Standards and Technology

Data set from peer-reviewed publication: A. J. Fleisher et al., Absolute 13C/12C Isotope Amount Ratio for Vienna Pee Dee Belemnite from Infrared Absorption Spectroscopy, Nature Physics. Measurements of isotope ratios are predominantly made with reference to standard specimens that have been characterized in the past. In the 1950s, the carbon isotope ratio was referenced to a belemnite sample collected by Heinz Lowenstam and Harold Urey in South Carolina?s Pee Dee region.

In Situ Carbon Dioxide, Methane, and Carbon Monoxide Mole Fractions from the Los Angeles Megacity Carbon Project

Data provided by  National Institute of Standards and Technology

Hourly observations of carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) mole fractions in dry air from tower- and rooftop-based sites in the Los Angeles Megacity Carbon Project network (currently 11 stations, with a 12th to be added in 2022). Carbon monoxide (CO) observations exist at several stations in this network but are not included in this data release pending additional calibration verification. Please contact the authors for higher frequency data, which are available on request. Data files are comma delimited (CSV).

Frequency stabilization of a quantum cascade laser by weak resonant feedback from a Fabry-Perot cavity

Data provided by  National Institute of Standards and Technology

Data from peer-reviewed publication: G. Zhao et al., Frequency stabilization of a quantum cascade laser by weak resonant feedback from a Fabry-Perot cavity, Optics Letters. Frequency-stabilized mid-infrared lasers are valuable tools for precision molecular spectroscopy. However, their implementation remains limited by complicated stabilization schemes. Here we achieve optical self-locking of a quantum cascade laser to the resonant leak-out field of a highly mode-matched two-mirror cavity.
