Abstract:

A simplified method of calculation of the contour of a totally polarized Raman band for an asymmetric top molecule in the gaseous state has been applied to the v1-band of the water molecule. The good fits between computed and experimental contours from approximately 150 to 350C lay the foundation for temperature determinations for water vapor from measurements of the Raman band profile.
