Paper Abstract

The absolute absorption and stimulated emission cross-sections, including the effects of hyperfine splitting and pressure broadening at low to moderate pressures are computed and compared with experimental results. The comparison is excellent and requires no fit parameters. An analysis of the degree to which the lineshape can be approximated by a single Lorentzian profile is provided as a function of background pressure.
