This chapter discusses the natural radiative lineshape, the pressure broadening of spectral lines emitted by low pressure gas discharges, and Doppler broadening. The combined effect of Lorentzian and Gaussian contributions to lineshapes is explained. Experimental observations from gas discharges at low pressures and temperature are considered.

Keywords:   spectral lines width, natural lineshape, pressure broadening, Doppler broadening, experimental observations
