Abstract: High-resolution ($\sim 0.02$ $cm^{-1}$) spectra of $^{12}CH_{4}$ and $^{13}CH_{4}$ were recorded in the $6000\, cm^{-1}$ region, and isotope shifts were measured for several clearly resolved vibration-rotation $lines^{1}$ The $2\nu_{3}$ spectrum of $^{13}CH_{4}$ has now been analyzed for the first time. Nineteen spectroscopic constants have been determined for this band using an algorithm for fitting spherical-top vibration-rotation lines In the P-, Q-, and R-branches simultaneously. The $2\nu_{3}$ $spectrum^{2}$ of $^{12}CH_{4}$ has been re-analyzed using this formalism; however, only sixteen spectroscopic constants could be determined with statistical significance because of the smaller fine-structure splittings inherent in this molecular band.
