Abstract : The continuous atomic absorption cross section of lithium and sodium vapors was measured between 600 and 1000 A using photoelectric techniques. Curves and tables are presented of the atomic absorption cross section versus energy from their series limits to 600 A. A comparison is made between these results and recent theoretical estimates. The conclusion is that theory and experiment are in reasonable agreement for lithium over the entire energy range, but that agreement for sodium is poor at photon energies above 7 eV. (Author)
