Line-shape parameters for the first rotational lines of HD in He

Abstract : We report theoretical and experimental line-shape parameters for He-perturbed pure rotational HD lines that are relevant for the studies of gas giants atmospheres. Besides the usual pressure broadening and shift parameters, we also report their speed dependencies and Dicke parameters. The theoretical values, obtained from quantum dynamical calculations, are for the R(j=0-3) lines and S(j=0-2) and temperatures from 10 to 500 K. The measurements, performed using stimulated Raman spectroscopy, were done for the S(j=0-2) rotational Raman lines at 77, 195 and 298 K. We also compare the results of our calculations with pressure broadening and line shift coefficients available in the literature at 77, 195 and 300 K for the studied R lines. We demonstrate that a simple Voigt profile is insufficient to accurately model the shapes of He-perturbed HD lines at conditions relevant to gas giants atmospheres, and one should incorporate also the speed-dependent effects and velocity-changing collisions.
