Abstract

Sulfur dioxide is still the subject of numerous spectroscopic studies since it plays an active role in the chemistry of Earth's atmosphere and it is a molecule of proven astrophysical importance. In the present work we have determined the self-broadening and integrated absorption coefficients for several lines in the nu(1) band spectral region around 9.2 mum. Besides the parameters of the lines belonging to the nu(1) fundamental of (32)SO(2), also those for some rovibrational lines of the nu(1)+nu(2)-nu(2) hot band of the (32)SO(2) isotopologue and the nu(1) band of the (34)SO(2) isotopic species have been determined. The measurements have been carried out at 297 K using a tunable diode laser spectrometer. The self-broadening parameters have also been theoretically determined employing a semiclassical formalism based on the Anderson-Tsao-Curnutte approximation. The study has been completed with the determination of the vibrational cross sections of the three fundamental bands measured from the spectra recorded at a resolution of 0.2 cm(-1) using a Fourier transform infrared spectrometer.
