Abstract: A series expansion is given for the computation of the integral over $ ( - \infty ,\infty )$ of the $ n$th power of the Voigt function for use in spectral line calculations with Doppler broadening. A nine significant figure table is presented for $ n$ up to 25 and for a wide range of values of the second parameter on a microfiche card in this issue.
