Abstract: Spectra of the 2$\nu_{3}$ band of formaldehyde have been obtained with high resolution ($0.035 cm^{-1}$). Measurements were made with pathlengths from 8 to 24 m and at sample pressures from 0.1 to 0.3 mm of Hg. More than 300 lines were observed and assigned for $J \leq 21$ and $K_{a} \leq 9$. From these data the following constants were determined in $cm^{-1}$: \begin{eqnarray*} \nu_{0}=3471.718 \pm 0.004 \\ A^{\prime}^{\prime} -A^{\prime} =0.0117 \pm 0.0005 \\ B^{\prime} = 1.28100 \pm 0.00024 \\ C^{\prime} = 1.11662 \pm 0.00024 \end{eqnarray*} The line strengths of 150 observed transitions were also obtained from the data. The strengths were analyzed to determine the band strength and the rotational factors. At $296^{\circ} K$, the strength of the $2\nu_{3}$ band was found to be $15.7\pm 0.9 cm^{-2}$ $atm^{-1}$. This paper presents progress of one phase of research carried out at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, under Contract No. NAS 7-100, Sponsored by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
