Pressure broadening parameters resulting from collisional perturbations by Ar, He, and H2 for a number of rotational transitions in the ν3 band of OCS have been measured using a diode laser spectrometer. The data are compared with theoretical values obtained using intermolecular potentials previously suggested for these systems and infinite order sudden approximation molecular scattering calculations.
