Abstract

We report the first measurements of the 1.1 mm (J = 3-2) lines of HCN, HNC, and HCO^+ in the Orion molecular cloud. The low-intensity broad velocity wings seen in the (1-0) lines of HCN and HCO^+ are greatly enhanced in the HCN (3-2) line but not in HCO^+ (3-2). No broad wings are seen in the HNC (3-2) line. The HCN observations suggest molecular hydrogen densities ~ 10^6 cm^(-3) in the broad wing source, and the differences between the lines of HCN and HCO^+ suggest that the lines may be formed in different regions within the source.
