Abstract:A cavity ring-down spectrometer calibrated with a set of precise atomic lines was built to retrieve precise line parameters in the near infrared.~[1,2] The spectrometer allows us to detect absorptions with a sensitivity of $10^{-11}$~cm$^{-1}$ and a spectral precision up to $10^{-6}$~cm$^{-1}$. Ro-vibrational lines in the second overtone of H$_2$ have been observed, including the extremely weak S$_3$(5) line with a line intensity less than $1times 10^{-30}$cm/molecule, which is among the weakest molecular lines detected by absorption in the gas phase. The absolute line positions of H$_2$ agree well with the high-level quantum chemical calculations including relativistic and QED corrections, with the deviation being less than $5times 10^{-4}$~cm$^{-1}$.~[3,4] A quantitative study has also been carried out on the $nu_1+5nu_3$ band of CO$_2$.~[5] It was the first CO$_2$ band observed 80 years ago in the spectrum of Venus. We determined the line positions with an accuracy of $3times 10^{-5}$~cm$^{-1}$, two orders of magnitude better than previous studies. Similar studies have been carried out to determine the line parameters of H$_2$O~[6] and CO~[7] in the spectral regions near 0.8~$mu$m. The spectroscopic parameters can be used in varies studies, from the atmospheres of the earth-like planets to the test of fundamental physics. vspace{0.1in} noindent textbf{References} noindent [1] H.
