The estimated accuracy and precision of the measurements is better than 10 kHz in 194 THz. Data were obtained as a function of sample pressure to investigate the broadening of the saturation features. _x000d_ The observed line shapes are well modeled by convolution of a fixed Gaussian transit-time and varying Lorentzian lifetime broadening, textit{i.e.} a Voigt-type profile. The lines exhibit a significantly larger collisional (lifetime) broadening than has been measured in conventional Doppler and pressure-broadened samples at ambient temperatures. The figure shows the fitted Lorentzian width versus sample pressure for P($31$). The slope of this plot gives the pressure broadening coefficient, $gamma_{self} = 9.35(13)$ MHz/mbar. For comparison, the coefficient derived from conventional Doppler and pressure broadened spectra for this transition is $2.7$ MHz/mbarfootnote{J. Molec. Spectrosc. textbf{209}, 216-227 (2001) and J. Quant. Spectrosc. Rad. Transf. textbf{76}, 237-267 (2003)}. The sub-Doppler broadening coefficients are all significantly larger than the conventionally measured ones, due to the increased importance of velocity-changing collisions. The measurements therefore give information on the balance between hard phase- or state-changing and large cross-section velocity-changing collisions. _x000d_ _x000d_ textbf{Acknowledgments}: Work at Brookhaven National Laboratory was carried out under Contract No. DE-SC0012704 with the U.S. Department_x000d_ of Energy, Office of Science, and supported by its Division of Chemical Sciences, Geosciences and Biosciences within the Office of Basic Energy Sciences. _x000d_ % end{document}_x000d_
