Abstract
The broadening of second derivative Gaussian and Lorentzian absorption lines has been calculated as a function of modulation amplitude. It is shown that Lorentzian lines are more sensitive to modulation-induced distortion than Gaussian lines. For modulation levels less than 0.2 (half-width at half-height), broadening is less than 1% for Gaussian lines and 2% for Lorentzian lines.
