dc.description.abstract Absorption spectra of water vapor and water vapor broadened by air have been measured at the frequency of the atomic iodine transition at 1.3 $\mu m (7603.14 cm^{-1})$. The absolute absorption cross section at $7603.14 cm^{-1}$ has been determined for each spectrum. The absorption cross section for 2 kPa of water vapor in 100 kPa air is $1.1 (\pm 0.2)\times 10 cm^{-24}$ at $7603.14 cm^{-1}$. All absorption at this frequency is attributed to the wings of nearby water vapor lines. A theoretical model, based on pressure broadening coefficients determined in this study, yields a simple expression for the absorption cross section at $7603.14 cm^{-1}$. \[ \sigma = 5.0 \times 10^{-26}(p_{H_{2}0} + 0.25 p_{air}) \] with p the pressure in kPa, and the cross section $\sigma$ in $cm^{2}$. en_US
