The optical properties of liquid xenon (LXe) in the vacuum ultra violet (VUV), determining the performance of a scintillation calorimeter. are discussed in detail. The available data. measured in a wider spectral region from visible to UV light. and in a large range of Xe densities, from gas to liquid, are examined. It is shown that this information can be used for deriving the LXe optical properties in the VUV. A comparison is made with the few direct measurements in LXe for VUV light resulting from the LXe excitation by ionizing particles. A useful relation is obtained which connects the Rayleigh scattering length to the refractive index in LXe.
