High-resolution absorption lineshapes of two H2O transitions near 7185.60 and 7154.35 cm−1 have been recorded in a heated static cell as a function of temperature (296–1100 K) and pressure (6–830 Torr) using two distributed-feedback diode lasers. The measured absorption spectra are least squares fit to both Voigt and Galatry profiles. Strong collisional-narrowing effects are observed in the Ar-broadened H2O spectra at near-atmospheric pressure due to the relatively weak collisional broadening induced by Ar–H2O collisions, while collisional narrowing is not significant for pure H2O absorption lineshapes. Line strengths and self-broadening coefficients are inferred from the pure H2O absorption spectra and compared with published data. Temperature dependences of the Ar-induced broadening, narrowing, and shift coefficients are determined using Galatry fits to the absorption data. The measured collisional-narrowing parameters have similar temperature dependence to the collisional-broadening coefficients.
