Abstract

A new computation of the absorption spectrum of H2 pairs in the fundamental band is given for temperatures from 600 to 5000 K. It is based on advanced interaction potentials and recent induced dipole components which were shown to be consistent with the existing laboratory measurements of low-temperature absorption spectra. The absorption is greater by factors of 2-3 than previous estimates and show a different band profile at the higher temperatures.
