Abstract
A mathematical method is described to compute the pressure dependent spectrum of the D1 and D2 lines of atomic cesium in the presence of argon. The method is based on the Anderson Tallman unified theory of pressure broadening in which the spectrum is determined form the Fourier transform of the auto-correlation function. The method uses modified potential energy surfaces of the ground and excited states that correlate to the 2S1/2 ground state and the 2P1/2 and 2P3/2excited states at large inter-nuclear separation. These surfaces are used to form interaction difference potentials to determine the auto-correlation function. In addition to being able to compute pressure dependent spectra that exhibit symmetry and far wing structure the method also allows us to compute the low pressure shift and broadening rates of the Lorentzian line core.
