Atomic Oscillator Strengths by Emission Spectroscopy and Lifetime Measurements
Ulf Griesmann, J Kling, J Musielok
A series of atomic oscillator strengths measurements was carried out in the last seven years at NIST with a combination of emission spectroscopy and lifetime measurements. Several light elements, specifically C, N, O, F and Ne, and two medium-heavy elements, Cl and Mn, were investigated. The prominent lines in the visible and near UV were measured, and typical uncertainties in the oscillator strength results were estimated to be in the range from 15% to 20%.
