Critically Evaluated Atomic Transition Probabilities for Sulfur S I Through S XV


Larissa Podobedova, Daniel E. Kelleher, Wolfgang L. Wiese


Atomic transition probabilities for about 6700 allowed and forbidden lines of S I through S XV are tabulated, based on a critical evaluation of recent literature sources. The transition probabilities were obtained mainly from recent sophisticated calculations carried out with complex computer codes. These tables provide data of interest for astronomical as well as laboratory plasmas. They will also be useful for the diagnostics of plasmas encountered in fusion energy research.
