However, when lines belonging to different molecules appear in the spectral scan as neighbors (reference lines) that do not interfere with the absorption of the observed line, as in the case of the three methanes and N2O, accurate line shift measurement is feasible. Using separate absorption cells for the reference and sample gases and placing them in series, we have been able to measure the pressure-induced shifts of the rotational lines of $^{12}CH_{4}, {^{13}}CH_{4}, {^{12}}CH_{3}D$ and $^{14}N_{2}O$ located between 1265 and $1275 cm^{-1}$. The temperature dependence of the shifts is also presented for collisions of the absorbers with $H_{2}, He, Ar, N_{2}, O$, and air. en_US dc.format.extent 163732 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title PRESSURE SHIFT MEASUREMENTS ON THE INFRARED LINES OF $^{12}CH+_{4}, ^{13}CH_{4}, ^{12}CH_{3}D$ AND $^{14}N_{2}O$ AROUND $7.85 \mu m$ USING A TUNABLE DIODE LASER$^{\dag}$ en_US dc.type article en_US
