Abstract We present a line profile study for two lines in the 2 ν 3 band of CH 4 recorded with a frequency stabilized tunable diode laser spectrometer. The broadening and narrowing (Dicke effect) parameters of the R (0) line perturbed by N 2 , O 2 , and He are derived from a simultaneous fitting of spectra at pressures from 20 to 300 Torr by using the soft and hard collision models. These parameters are determined for the A and F components of the unresolved R (3) manifold perturbed by N 2 , Ar, and He from the line profile analysis of spectra at pressures between 50 and 500 Torr. The line mixing effect between the two F components is also taken into account and the absorber speed dependent effect on broadening is estimated for N 2 and Ar.
