Calculation of random exponential band transmittances for an array of Voigt lines
Abstract
In the present consideration of the calculation of Voigt line array random exponential band transmittances, a fit is achieved to C(R,d) which is analogous to the modified Curtis approximation for a single line proposed by Rodgers and Williams (1974), where d and R may be thought of as the nondimensional pressure and absorber quantity, respectively. Although the relative error in transmittance is magnified for small Lorentz transmittance, the absolute error in transmittance decreases.
