We present measurements of Raman linewidths in the fundamental Q branch of CO for mixtures with Ar at temperatures of 77, 195, and 300 K, recorded using an inverse Raman spectrometer. Starting from a recent ab initio potential energy surface, theoretical values of Ar broadening coefficients for CO infrared and Raman lines (isotropic and anisotropic components) at temperatures in the range 77 to 1100 K are calculated via quantum-mechanical methods. The relative merits of the close coupling theoretical results over the coupled states results are underlined. Finally, a comparison of the calculated pressure broadening coefficients is made with the present experimental data as well as with recently available infrared data. There is general agreement between the calculated and measured values of the broadenings for all the temperatures probed. We conclude that the temperature dependence of the infrared and Raman broadening coefficients have been correctly determined theoretically and may be used to test a common temperature scaling law.
