Recent advances in experimental spectroscopy offer the promise of yielding much detailed information about molecular potentials and collisional interactions from a study of the light emitted or absorbed in the far wings of atomic lines. However, readily manipulable, accurate theoretical expressions and methods are needed to extract such knowledge. Straightforward formulas, based on the distorted-wave approximation, for the normalized emission intensity in the far wing of a pumped atomic line are given here. By normalizing theoretical spectra with respect to the strength of the atomic line, one obtains a convenient form for the analysis of experimental differential spectra that are reported in nonarbitrary units. Theoretical and experimental spectra are numerically consistent in the test case of the blue-wing satellite (7610 A) of the Rb D2 line (7800 A) broadened by Xe perturbers. © 1985 The American Physical Society.
