|Title:||Deviations of interstellar extinctions from the mean R-dependent extinction law|
|Authors:||Mathis, John S.; Cardelli, Jason A.|
|Affiliation:||AA(Washburn Observatory, Madison, WI), AB(Washburn Observatory, Madison, WI)|
|Publication:||Astrophysical Journal, Part 1 (ISSN 0004-637X), vol. 398, no. 2, p. 610-620. (ApJ Homepage)|

An analysis is conducted of the deviations from the mean extinction law
A(lambda)/A(V) over UV wavelengths emphasizing sightlines through bright
nebulosities vs dark clouds. The stellar sample is subdivided into sight
lines with defined properties, and different behavior is noted for the
deviations in the dark-cloud and bright-nebula sight lines. The
deviations are correlated within the same wavenumber interval, but
unique shapes for the FUV rise in the deviations are observed.
Distributions of silicate grains are considered to account for the
extinctions at certain wavenumbers that would explain the observations.
The FUV rise in the extinctions is theorized to be related to the UV
extinction of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.
