After a couple of hours of searching I cant find the absorpion spectrum of nitrogen in UV-Vis range (350-450 nm is what im looking for).

Could anybody be so nice as to help me out?

To specify I'm talking about molecular nitrogen.

I'm sorry for any broken or incorrect english, I'm still learning.

  • $\begingroup$ @CountTo10 I googled for about 2 hours including some image searches, but all I could find were sectra of NO2 and not N2. Now I will admit I'm not the best at using google so I is well in the realm of posibilities that I missed something. $\endgroup$ – G. Wesseling Nov 29 '16 at 14:43

Nitrogen is transparent in that region (up to vacuum-UV). A wavelength of 350 nm corresponds to 3.55 eV, much less than the ionization energy of N$_2$.
