Atomic Spectroscopic Databases at NIST



Joseph Reader, Alexander Kramida, Yuri Ralchenko


We present recent work at NIST to develop and maintain databases for spectra, transition probabilities, and energy levels of atoms that are astrophysically important. We also describe our programs to critically compile these data as well as the recently developed plasma population kinetics databases and online collisional-radiative code.
