The Local Interstellar Ultraviolet Radiation Field Richard Conn Henry
 

Summary: The Local Interstellar Ultraviolet Radiation Field
Richard Conn Henry
Maryland Space Grant Consortium
American Astronomical Society Meeting: Washington, DC, 2002 January
Albedo = 0.0 Albedo = 0.1 Albedo = 0.40 Albedo = 1.0

Appearance of an Interstellar Grain
in the Far Ultraviolet
My new result is that the albedo of the Interstellar Grains in the far
ultraviolet is much lower than is widely believed:
a = 0.4 at 1500 A and a = 0.1 at still shorter wavelengths.
