Welcome to the NIST Atomic Spectra Database, NIST Standard Reference Database #78. The spectroscopic data may be selected and displayed according to wavelengths or energy levels by choosing one of the following options:
Spectral lines and associated energy levels displayed in wavelength order with all selected spectra intermixed or in multiplet order. Transition probabilities for the lines are also displayed where available.
Additional information about the database may be obtained through the following links:
Atomic Spectroscopy Intro - Outlines basic atomic physics concepts, explains terminology and notation.
ASD Intro & Contents - Introduction to and contents of the Atomic Spectra Database.
Bibliography - Bibliography of data sources used for this database.
Help - On-line help in using the database.
This database provides access and search capability for NIST critically evaluated data on atomic energy levels, wavelengths, and transition probabilities that are reasonably up-to-date. The Atomic Spectroscopy Data Center has carried out these critical compilations. The Data Center is located in the Physical Measurement Laboratory at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
