Paper Abstract

At high pressure the rst resonance lines of rubidium have been observed to broaden asymmetrically. A the- oretical line shape for this asymmetry has been determined via the Anderson-Talman theory and the impact approximation. The broadening and shift rates compared nicely to previous low pressure results and the rates for asymmetry have been measured for the noble gases, methane, and ethane.
