Abstract

Analytical expressions are presented for the frequency dependence of loss factor, conductivity, loss tangent, amplitude attenuation per radian (absorption index), imaginary refractive index, amplitude and power attenuation per unit length (absorption coefficient), and reflectivity for a damped harmonic oscillator system. Equations are given for the displacement of maxima of these parameters as a function of line strength and width (intensity and damping). Some limiting value relations are given, and the functional dependences of the parameters illustrated graphically. Applications to physical problems are discussed briefly.
