|Collision-Induced Absorpton cross-sections|
Collision-Induced Absorption (CIA) cross-sections have now been added
into the HITRAN compilation. The data come from different experimental and
theoretical sources and have been cast into a consistent format and
The CIA data have been placed on the anonymous ftp site at our lab. The sources and implementation of the data are described in the article “New section of the HITRAN database: Collision-Induced Absorption (CIA),” C. Richard, I.E. Gordon, L.S. Rothman, M. Abel, L. Frommhold, M. Gustafsson, J.-M. Hartmann, C. Hermans, W.J. Lafferty, G. Orton, K.M. Smith, H. Tran, J. Quant. Spectrosc. and Rad. Transfer 113, 1276-85 (2012).

The organization and content of the files with the CIA
data are described in a
read me file at the top level of the CIA file folders. The
collision pairs, spectral and temperature ranges are also presented in the
table below. Please cite the article above as well as the original
sources of data when using this database. In fact, we encourage
users to read the original publications carefully because of the
special aspects of CIA phenomenon.
We hope that you will find this new feature helpful in your research. Please let us know if you find any problems with the data, or on the contrary, if these data have improved your research results appreciably.
