The self-broadening coefficients of 33 rovibrational lines in the ν and ν bands of CHF were measured at a sample temperature of 183 K using a diode-laser spectrometer. We have also realized the measurement of these coefficients at room temperature for 10 of these lines in order to determine their temperature dependence. These results were obtained by fitting to the experimental profile the Voigt lineshape and the Rautian and Galatry models taking into account the collisional narrowing. Calculations of the self-broadening coefficients were also performed for the same temperatures from a semiclassical model involving only electrostatic interactions in the intermolecular potential. The calculated values are significantly larger than the experimental data for both temperatures but the J-dependences of the self-broadenings are well reproduced. Moreover, the theoretical temperature dependence of these coefficients is in good agreement with that derived from the measurements.
