Abstract
Using an interferometric method, detailed analysis of the self-broadened 748.8 nm Ne line shapes emitted from the glow discharge of neon was performed, where departures from the ordinary Voigt profile were observed. These departures are shown to be consistent with fits of the speed-dependent asymmetric Voigt profile to experimental profiles. It was shown that neglecting the correlation between Doppler and collisional broadening may cause errors in determined line shape parameter values. Coefficients of the pressure broadening, shift and collision-time asymmetry are determined and compared with those calculated in the adiabatic approximation for the van der Waals and Lennard-Jones potentials.
