Analysis of the Ultraviolet Absorption Cross Sections of Six Isotopomers of Nitrous Oxide (N2O) using 3D Wavepacket Propagation
Shinkoh Nanbu, Professor, Department of Materials and Life Sciences, Faculty of Science and Technology
Read from here:

The loss of nitrous oxide from the atmosphere is very simple, involving photolysis in the stratospheric UV windows (90%);  
In 1997 Yung and Miller presented the “zero point energy” model, which revised our understanding of the role of photolysis in fractionating isotopomers…
