Abstract

A new technique has been developed for deconvolving diode-laser spectra. This technique treats Doppler broadening, collisional broadening, and instrumental effects simultaneously. This technique is superior to previous deconvolution methods in the recovery of line-strength and transition-frequency information. A section of the ethane spectrum near 12 μm is used as an example. This new approach applies to any spectroscopy in which the instrumental resolution is narrower than actual linewidths.
