NIST Atomic Spectra Bibliographic Databases

Welcome to the NIST Atomic Spectra Bibliographic Databases. References to publications may be selected and displayed after choosing one of the following three databases.

 

Atomic Transition Probability Bibliographic Database

This interactive database contains references on atomic transition probabilities (oscillator strengths, line strengths, and radiative lifetimes). Both theoretical and experimental papers are listed.

Atomic Spectral Line Broadening Bibliographic Database

This interactive database contains references on atomic spectral line broadening (line shapes and shifts). Both theoretical and experimental papers are listed.

Atomic Energy Levels and Spectra Bibliographic Database

This interactive database contains references on atomic energy levels and wavelengths. Preference is given to experimental papers.

These databases provide access and search capability for NIST bibliography databases on atomic energy levels, wavelengths, transition probabilities, and line broadening and shapes. The Atomic Energy Levels Data Center and Data Center on Atomic Transition Probabilities and Line Shapes have implemented these databases, which are the main bibliography source for the NIST critical compilations. Both Data Centers are located in the Physical Measurement Laboratory at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

These databases were funded [in part] by NIST's Standard Reference Data Program (SRDP) and by NIST's Systems Integration for Manufacturing Applications (SIMA) Program.
