Paper Abstract

Infrared heterodyne spectroscopy is an extremely useful tool for doppler limited studies of atomic and molecular lines in diverse astrophysical regions. The current state-of-the art is reviewed and the analysis of CO2 lines in the atmosphere of Mars is outlined. Doppler limited observations have enabled the discovery of natural laser emission in the mesosphere of Mars and the discovery of failure of local thermodynamic equilibrium near the surface of Mars.
