Abstract

Line strength measurements and pressure-broadening coefficients for the oxygen A-band (b1Σg + ←X3Σg -) at 13122 cm-1 using tunable diode laser absorption spectroscopy are reported. Diode lasers are scanned over individual lines and the absorption at different pressures is recorded; from these data the line strength for each transition is obtained. Average values for each transition are compared to those previously published, and in particular a comparison with the HITRAN database is presented. Line strengths reported here are 5–10% lower than the HITRAN values.
