Abstract By using a tunable diode laser absorption spectrometer in conjunction with a cryogenically cooled multipath cell, we have revisited the air-induced pressure-broadening coefficients and the narrowing coefficients related to the Dicke effect, as well as the temperature dependences, for the R(18) and R(20) lines of the (10°1)I←(00°0) vibrational band at 2.68μm of carbon dioxide. The selected transitions are used to probe in situ CO2 in the troposphere and the lower stratosphere by using balloon-borne laser sensors. The achieved measurements are thoroughly compared to existing former determinations. The impact of processing the in situ atmospheric CO2 spectra with this new set of molecular data is reported.
