Abstract

We have measured the absorptance in the 6.3 μm band of a 1m column of water vapor as a function of concentration c, pressure p, and temperature T. From the measured absorptance, the first derivatives with respect to c, p, and T as well as the second derivatives with respect to cc, pp, cp, and pT have been obtained. We have compared these experimental results with values calculated from the line parameters of the 720 strongest rotational lines in the band.
