Abstract

The design of a thin quartz cell suitable for absorption and circular dichroism measurements in the vacuum ultraviolet is described. Important features of the cell are (1) that it can be disassembled for cleaning and reproducibly reassembled with path lengths up to 0.3 mm, and (2) that strain in the windows from the compressed sample can be relieved by a sample overflow port. The latter feature allows the cell to be used for circular dichroism as well as absorption measurements.
