Description

Convert vacuum wavelengths to air wavelengths

Usage

1
vactoair(wave_vac)

Arguments

wave_vac

vacuum wavelength, in Angstroms, scalar or vector

Details

Corrects for the index of refraction of air under standard conditions. Wavelength values below 2000 A will not be altered. Method from Ciddor (1996). Accurate to about 10 m/s.

Value

wave_air

air wavelength, in Angstroms, scalar -r vector
