Abstract

Classical molecular dynamics simulations (CMDS) are used for calculations of the collision-induced absorption (CIA) by pure N2 in the (2.1-2.2 µm) region of the first overtone band. They lead to reasonable (±15%) agreement with the only two laboratory measurements available, at 97 K and room temperature. Based on these experiment/theory comparisons, empirical corrections are made to the CMDS-calculated CIA of pure N2 in the 200-300 K temperature range. In addition, the contribution of N2-O2 collisions is, in the absence of any laboratory measurement, calculated and a simple semiempirical model (the first of its kind) is built in order to predict the CIA of N2 under Earth atmosphere conditions. This is successfully validated by comparisons with ground-based atmospheric transmission spectra in the 2.1-2.2 µm region.
