Abstract

Frequency-stabilized cavity ring-down spectroscopy (FS-CRDS) was used to study CO2 lineshapes in the (20013)←(00001) band centered near 2.06 um. Two rovibrational transitions were chosen for this study to measure non-Voigt collisional effects for air-broadened lines over the pressure range of 7-27 kPa. Lineshape analysis for both lines revealed evidence of simultaneous Dicke (collisional) narrowing and speed-dependent effects, which if not incorporated in the modeling of CO2 lineshapes, introduces biases exceeding 5% in the retrieved air-broadening parameters. As a result, it was observed that the most appropriate line profile for modeling CO2 lineshapes near 2.06 um was the speed-dependent Nelkin-Ghatak profile, which includes both collisional narrowing and speed-dependent effects.
