MOTIVATION In order to control rapidly growing atmospheric CO 2 concentration around the world NASAs future OCO-2 mission will monitor global atmospheric CO 2 from space. As a precession requirement, this space based remote sensing mission must monitor the global atmospheric CO 2 with an unprecedented accuracy of 0.25%. http://oco.jpl.nasa.gov/
To minimize systematic uncertainties OCO-2 will measure column averaged CO 2 dry-air mole fraction (X CO 2 ) as defined by, This requires absorption line shape parameters of O 2 and CO 2 to be known with 0.1% accuracy. MOTIVATION CONT. http://oco.jpl.nasa.gov/
MOTIVATION CONT. However, as of today, the current knowledge of these parameters (widths, shifts…) with this accuracy is very limited or not known. In order to achieve this goal an accurate modeling of data will be required including line mixing as well as other non-Voigt features, collision induced absorption (CIA), Dicke narrowing and speed dependence (SD). In this talk we will present our effort to measure line mixing effect in O 2 A-band using photoacoustic spectroscopy.
COLLISIONAL LINE MIXING (A) Low pressure regime At low pressures, lines can be considered as isolated each other.
(B) High pressure regime The resulting spectrum can not be considered as a superposition of two isolated lines due the population exchange. COLLISIONAL LINE MIXING

OUTLINE Motivation Collisional line mixing Photoacoustic spectroscopy (PAS)
PHOTOACOUSTIC SPECTROSCOPY (PAS) Compared to direct absorption spectroscopy, this method is benefited by zero background measurement. Optically broadband devices (acoustic properties of the system do not depend on the spectral distribution of the absorbed radiation). High precision (0.01%), high resolution (200 MHz) and a large dynamic range (Unsaturated lines for (0.1 – 5 atm)). Why PAS?
PHOTOACOUSTIC SPECTROMETER A non-radiative de-excitation mechanism is considered. Absorbed photon energy is released via translational energy by increasing the temperature (heating). The heat dissipation to the surrounding environment creates a pressure wave. When the laser is modulated, this pressure variation is also periodic and results a acoustic wave. This acoustic wave can be detected by using a sensitive microphone. i f v fi + v mod Optical transition P

SUMMARY We have utilized a photoacoustic spectrometer for O 2 A-band at 760 nm to meet precision requirements of current (ACOS/GOSAT/TCCON) and future (OCO-2/OCO-3/ASCENDS) remote sensing applications. This can be used to study line mixing effect as well as collision induced absorption for remote sensing relevant pressures (0.1-5 atm). In order to fit the spectra at relatively high pressures, more complete line mixing model must be included in the fitting procedure.
