Title: WING CORRECTIONS TO MEASURED HALF-WIDTHS
Creators: Fridovich, B.
Issue Date: 1983
Publisher: Ohio State University
Abstract: A simple method is presented for correcting line half-widths, measured from high resolution data, for errors introduced by the uncertainty in locating the 100\% transmittance line. The correction is calculated from the initial measurement of: central transmittance $\tau$(0); line half-width at $\sqrt{\tau(0)}$; and the distance from line center to the intersection of $ \tau(\nu)$ and the 100\% line g. By assuming a line shape-Lorentz or Voigt - we can compute a correction.
