Moreau, G., J. Boisseles, C. Boulet, R.H. Tipping, and Q. Ma, 2000: Theoretical study of the collision-induced fundamental absorption spectra of O2-O2 pairs for temperatures between 193 and 273 K. J. Quant. Spectrosc. Radiat. Transfer, 64, 87-107, doi:10.1016/S0022-4073(98)00141-1.

A theoretical analysis of the collision-induced fundamental absorption spectra of O2-O2 pairs is presented for temperatures between 193 and 273 K. Most of the absorption arises from the long-range quadrupole and hexadecapole-induced mechanisms for which accurate matrix elements are available from various other experimental measurements or from ab initio calculations. The line shape used is that obtained from quantum computations of the far infrared collision-induced absorption of N2, modified to include dips resulting from the effects of intercollisional interference. Several refinements, including contributions from back-reaction and short-range induced-dipole moments, can improve the agreement in certain spectral regions but do not lead to significant improvement in the global fts to the experimental data. The small structural features superimposed on the smooth continuum can be modeled by the modified line shape but the half-widths of the dips have a density dependence inconsistent with that arising from interference. On the other hand, difference spectra ontained by subtracting the theoretical results from the experimental data appear quite similar to those obtained previously at low temperatures, leading to the conclusion that this structure is due to dimers. Further experimental results at higher temperatures and for O2-N2 pairs would be useful to validate this interpretation.
