The infrared transmittance of carbon dioxide has been calculated over a wide range of path lengths, pressures, and temperatures from 500 to 10,000 cm−1. Values of the transmittance are given at intervals of 2.5 cm−1. In addition, transmittance values are also given which have been averaged over larger intervals. All contributing spectral lines whose relative intensity is greater than 10−8 that of the strongest line in any particular band have been included in the calculation. In addition, the contributions from the eight major isotopic species have been included. The calculation of the vibrational energy levels included terms through the third power of the vibrational quantum number and also the effects of Fermi resonance. The final transmittance tables were generated using the quasi-random model of molecular band absorption.
