Abstract : Collisional widths for the individual rotational lines of the P branch of the 10.4-micrometers CO2 band have been measured using a CO2 laser as the ir energy source. Both self-broadening and N2 broadening have been studied. An anomalously large N2-broadened width in the vicinity of J=34 has been observed with an indication of a similar effect for the self-broadened width. (Author)
