The spectra of the SPAN database will concern laboratory analogues of planetary atmospheric aerosols synthesized at LATMOS, either with a cold plasma experiment (Szopa et al. 2006) or with a photochemical reactor (Carrasco et al. 2013). Their structures are sub-micrometric spherical particles or thin organic films. The spectra will be in transmission, absorption or complex refractive indices and will cover a large wavelength range, from X-ray up to far IR.
