Calculations of the pressure‐broadened half‐width and pressure‐induced line shift are made for
as the buffer gas. It will be shown that the intermolecular potential for these systems is unusually simple, which has lead to many problems and complications in the calculations. Comparison with measurements of both the half‐width and line shift will be shown and the future direction of the work presented.
