Example of line broadening accuracy measurements. History of the 183-GHz water line air pressure broadening parameter measurements.


The broadening parameter value measured by different authors using different techniques is plotted versus year the data publication. Vertical bars correspond to experimental uncertainty. Due to systematical errors the values differ more than the measurement errors given by the authors. Our measurements (point 11 Ref. 11 (2000) and 12 Ref. 1 (2003) by resonator and point 14 Ref. 9 (2005) by RAD) are in a good agreement with and have the smallest uncertainty among others.
