Abstract : The shape of spectral lines is determined from the expression for the shift of a spectral atomic line in a foreign gas. Characteristic functions are used in the derivation. Thermal molecular motion is not considered. Consequently, the theoretical curves of line width as a function of the principal quantum number lie below the experimental curves. (Author)
