State-of-state collisional energy transfer rates are being obtained by the inversion of pressure broadened linewidth data. Measurements of linewidths in overtone vibration-rotation transitions have yielded information on rotationally elastic and inelastic collision rates for vibrationally excited HCl, HF, and CO. Similar information is being acquired for vibrationally excited DF. Work is continuing in evaluating the energy corrected sudden scaling theory. Author
