Abstract : Research on microwave line shapes is treated. Equipment was built which appears to be functioning very satisfactorily and producing useful results. Efforts directed toward the interpretation on a molecular basis of the observed pressure-dependence of absorption intensity are under ay. Several approaches are being developed. Experimental measurements are being extended to discover the effect of temperature, which varies the r lative population of the rotational states, on the pressure at which the peak height begins to decrease.
