New high-resolution experimental data are reported on the linestrengths and self-pressure-broadened Lorentzian widths for the P1(1)-P1(10), R1(0)-R1(15), and P2(13)- R2(12) vibration-rotation lines in the fundamental and the first overtone absorption bands of HI. An improved dipole moment expansion as a function of the reduced nuclear displacement is generated and compared with the available ab initio calculations. A new set of the Herman - Wallis coefficients is obtained, which is in a better agreement with theory than previously published results.

Keywords: Diatomic molecules; Linestrengths; Dipole moment function; Pressure broadening; Hyperfine structure.
