Abstract:Previously, we could record on the AILES Beamline at the SOLEIL Synchrotron facility the first resolved centrifugal distorsion spectrum of methane (CH$_4$) in the THz region, which led to a precise determination of line intensities footnote{V. Boudon, O. Pirali, P. Roy, J.-B. Brubach, L. Manceron and J. Vander Auwera, {em J. Quant. Spectrosc. Radiate. Transfer}, {bf 111}, 1117--1129 (2010).}. Later, we could measure collisional self- and N$_2$-broadening coefficients at room temperaturefootnote{M. Sanzharov, J. Vander Auwera, O. Pirali, P. Roy, J.-B. Brubach, L. Manceron, T. Gabard and V. Boudon, {em J. Quant. Spectrosc. Radiate. Transfer}, {bf 113}, 1874--1886 (2012).}. This time, we reinvestigated this topic by measuring these broadening coefficients at low temperature (between 120~K and 160~K) for $J=5$ to $12$, thanks to a cryogenic multipass cellfootnote{F. Kwabia Tchana, F. Willaert, X. Landshere, J.-M. Flaud, L. Lago, M. Chapuis, C. Herbeaux, P. Roy and L. Manceron, {em Rev. Sci. Instrum./}, {bf 84}, 093101 (2013).}. We used a 93~m total optical path length. Five pure methane pressures (from 10 to 100 mbar) and four CH$_4$/N$_2$ mixtures (20~% of methane with a total pressure from 100 to 800 mbar) were used. These measurements allow us to obtain data for physical conditions approaching those of Titan's atmosphere and to estimate temperature exponents.
