Abstract

The results of search for the optimal location of ultraviolet passbands for an extra-atmospheric photometric system are given. The addition of passbands near the well-known extinction bump at 218 nm to the photometric system makes it possible to determine interstellar extinction with greater precision than with the photometric system without UV passbands.

Keywords: ISM; extinction; techniques; photometric
