Abstract: We report on rovibrational fine structure spectroscopy of room-temperature trifluoromethane with a saturated absorption method, using a quantum cascade laser at around 8.6 μm
phase-locked to a self-referenced mid-infrared frequency comb synthesizer. The absolute line-center frequencies of 36 lines have been measured by means of the wavelength modulation method with a best fractional uncertainty of ∼3×10−9 in a single acquisitionn a single acquisition scan from 34.7426 to 34.7443 THz. In addition, an extensive investigation of the measured Lamb-dip profiles using both direct pump-probe spectroscopy method and wavelength modulation technique has been performed for two selected lines,
rR40(64) and rR36(38), be-longing to the υ5 vibrational band, as a function of either the gas pressure or the pump beam power. This approach allowed the measurement of the main spectroscopic parameters, such as saturation intensity, transition electric dipole moment, as well as self-pressure broadening coefficient. © 2018 Elsevier Ltd.
