The spectroscopic parameters for the $a^{1}\Delta_{g}$$\leftarrow$$X^{3}\Sigma^{-}_{g}$ band of molecular oxygen near 1.27 $\mu$m were given in HITRAN almost since the inception of the database. This band is of fundamental importance in the field of remote sensing. Although, the spectral parameters were updated several times numerous uncertainties have remained. Even the most recent update (November, 2009), that was proven to be superior to previous versions of HITRAN in the atmospheric retrievals \footnote{Washenfelder RA, Toon GC, Blavier J-F, Yang Z, Allen NT, Wennberg PO, et al. Carbon dioxide column abundances at the Wisconsin Tall Tower site. J Geophys Res D 2006;111:22305.}, leaves room for improvement. This includes not only correction of the existing parameters (for instance the J-dependence of line intensities for $^{16}$O$^{18}$O) but also accounting for electric quadrupole transitions. The addition of the $\Delta$$J$=$\pm$2 electric quadrupole transitions was recently shown to be important \footnote{Gordon IE, Kassi S, Campargue A, Toon GC. First identification of the electric quadrupole transitions of oxygen in the solar and laboratory spectra. JQSRT 2010;111:1174-1183.}. Also one has to evaluate, the correlation between the overlapping $\Delta$$J$=$\pm$1, 0 magnetic dipole and electric quadrupole lines. The (1-1) band of $^{16}$O$_{2}$ and (0-0) band of $^{16}$O$^{17}$O have intensities similar to quadrupole transitions, and therefore the reference spectroscopic data for these species is required. In order to provide accurate input parameters for calculation of line lists the CW-Cavity Ring Down Spectroscopy (CW-CRDS) technique has been used to record the high sensitivity absorption spectrum of this band. The spectra were obtained between 7640 and 7917 cm$^{-1}$ with ``natural'' oxygen and the absolute intensities of 377 oxygen transitions were measured. They include the $a^{1}\Delta_{g}$$\leftarrow$$X^{3}\Sigma^{-}_{g}$ (0-0) bands of $^{16}$O$_{2}$, $^{16}$O$^{18}$O and $^{16}$O$^{17}$O. The (0-0) bands of $^{16}$O$_{2}$ contain electric quadrupole transitions with line intensities ranging from 1$\times$10$^{-30}$ to 1.9$\times$10$^{-28}$ cm/molecule. The lines from (1-1) band were also measured.

In order to improve and extend the existing HITRAN database\footnote{L. S. Rothman, I. E. Gordon, et al. "The HITRAN 2012 molecular spectroscopic database," JQSRT 113, 4-50 (2013).} and HITEMP\footnote{L. S. Rothman, I. E. Gordon, et al. "HITEMP, the high-temperature molecular spectroscopic database," JQSRT 111, 2139-2150 (2010).} data for carbon monoxide, the ro-vibrational line lists were computed for all transitions of nine isotopologues of the CO molecule, namely $^{12}$C$^{16}$O, $^{12}$C$^{17}$O, $^{12}$C$^{18}$O, $^{13}$C$^{16}$O, $^{13}$C$^{17}$O, $^{13}$C$^{18}$O, $^{14}$C$^{16}$O, $^{14}$C$^{17}$O, and $^{14}$C$^{18}$O in the electronic ground state up to $v$ = 41 and $J$ = 150. Line positions and intensity calculations were carried out using a newly-determined piece-wise dipole moment function (DMF) in conjunction with the wavefunctions calculated from a previous experimentally-determined potential energy function of Coxon and Hajigeorgiou\footnote{J. Coxon and P. Hajigeorgiou. "Direct potential fit analysis of the $X^{1}\Sigma^{+}$ ground state of CO," J. Chem. Phys. 121, 2992-3008 (2004).}. Ab initio calculations and a direct-fit method which simultaneously fits all the reliable experimental ro-vibrational matrix elements has been used to construct the piecewise dipole moment function.
To provide additional input parameters into the fit, new Cavity Ring Down Spectroscopy experiments were carried out to enable measurements of the lines in the 4-0 band with low uncertainty (Grenoble) as well as the first measurements of lines in the 6-0 band (Hefei). Accurate partition sums have been derived through direct summation for a temperature range from 1 to 9000 Kelvin. A complete set of broadening and shift parameters is also provided and now include parameters induced by CO$_{2}$ and H$_{2}$ in order to aid planetary applications.
