An accurate knowledge of line intensities, collisional broadening coefficients and narrowing parameters is necessary for the interpretation of high-resolution infrared spectra of the Earth and other planetary atmospheres. One of the most promising spectral domains for 12C2H4 monitoring in such environments is located near the 3.36 µm window, through its ν11 C–H stretching mode. In this paper, we report an extensive study in which we precisely determine spectroscopic parameters of 12C2H4 ν11 band at 297±1 K, using a narrow Difference-Frequency-Generation (DFG) laser with 10−4 cm−1 resolution. Absorption measurements were performed in the 2975–2980 cm−1 spectral window to investigate 32 lines corresponding to J’Ka’,Kc’JKa,Kc, where, 5≤J≤7; 0≤Ka≤6 and 1≤Kc≤14. Spectroscopic parameters are retrieved using either Voigt or appropriate Galatry profile to simulate the measured 12C2H4 line shape. Line intensities along with self-broadening coefficients are reported for all lines. Narrowing coefficients for each isolated line are also derived. To our knowledge, the current study reports the first extensive spectroscopic parameter measurements of the 12C2H4 ν11 band in the 2975–2980 cm−1 range.
