Abstract

Reported here are highly accurate, experimentally measured ro-vibrational transition frequencies for the 12C16O2 (20012)<--(00001) band at λ = 2 µm. Measurements were performed by a frequency-stabilized cavity ring-down spectroscopy (FS-CRDS) instrument designed to achieve precision molecular spectroscopy in this important region of the infrared. Through careful control and traceable characterization of CO2 sample conditions, and through high-fidelity measurements spanning several months in time, we achieve absolute uncertainties for the reported transition intensities between 0.07% and 0.46%. Such high accuracy spectroscopy is shown to provide a stringent test of ab initio dipole moment and potential energy surface, and therefore transition intensities calculated from first principles.
