Abstract

By combining Barrell and Sears’ measurements in the visible and Koch’s and Traub’s in the ultraviolet, a dispersion formula for standard air has been derived, viz., (<i>n</i>-1)10<sup>8</sup>=6432.8+2 949 810(146-σ<sup>2</sup>)<sup>-1</sup>+25 540(41--σ<sup>2</sup>)<sup>-1</sup>, σ being vacuum wave number in µ<sup>-1</sup>, which should satisfy all needs of precision spectroscopy, in particular for converting wavelengths in air into vacuum values.
