Abstract

Calculations of self-broadened half-widths and self-induced pressure shifts are made using the complex Robert-Bonamy formalism. The results of calculations using different approximations of the intermolecular potential indicate that this is a strong collision system. The effects of the imaginary components on the half-widths are studied. The temperature, vibrational, and rotational state dependence of the half-width are investigated. Results are compared with measurements from the database of self-broadening of water vapor
