Optical Constants and Lab Spectra of Water Ice

Transmission spectra of amorphous and crystalline H2O-ice at temperatures from 20-150 K for a wavelength range from 1.11 to 2.63 microns. These spectra have not been continuum-corrected or had the infrared interference fringes removed. Optical constants (n and k values) were derived from these laboratory spectra and are included in the data set.
