Abstract

An analytical expression for a Voigt dispersion line-shape function that incorporates speed-dependent effects (SDEs) on the collision broadening, applicable to spectroscopic techniques that measure dispersion signals, is presented. It is based upon a speed-dependent Voigt (SDV) model for absorption spectrometry that assumes that the molecular relaxation rate has a quadratic dependence on molecular speed. The expression is validated theoretically in the limit of small SDEs by demonstration that it reverts to the ordinary Voigt dispersion line-shape function and experimentally in a separate work by experiments performed by the noise-immune cavity-enhanced optical heterodyne molecular spectrometry technique. A comparison is given between the SDEs in the SDV absorption and dispersion line-shape functions. It is shown that both line shapes are affected significantly but differently by SDEs. The expression derived provides, for the first time to our knowledge, a possibility also for the techniques that measure dispersion signals to handle SDEs.

  47. It is worth noting that, even though the collision–time asymmetry and line mixing give rise to an asymmetric response function that can be modeled by adding a small correction term of the form of a (Lorentzian) dispersion function to the Lorentzian absorption profile, this does not elucidate how SDEs affect the dispersion mode of detection (the detection is in those cases still done in absorption).

  55. Note that, for convenience, all widths and frequencies used in this work, and thereby those given in Eq. (1), are given in natural frequencies, i.e., in units of hertz. These differ by a factor of 2π from those used in [33], which are given in angular frequencies. However, because the α, β, and ε entities constitute ratios of widths and frequencies, they, and all subsequent expressions of which they are part, are unaffected by the choice of frequency scale for the widths and frequencies.
