Abstract:

Measurements have been made of the important HDO molecular absorption line parameters near a number of DF laser lines. While the line positions are in good agreement with the values given by the AFCRL Atmospheric Absorption Line Parameters Compilation, there are significant differences for a number of the line strengths, and small differences for the particular line widths reported here. The new measured line parameters were used to calculate the atmospheric absorption of the above laser lines for various temperature and altitudes. Good agreement was obtained between these calculations and the available laboratory and field measurements of atmospheric absorption. Author
