Abstract

Over the last 25 years, the atomic standard reference databases and online tools developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) provide users around the world with the highest-quality data on various atomic parameters (e.g., level energies, transition wavelengths, and oscillator strengths) as well as online capabilities for fast and reliable collisional-radiative modeling of diverse plasmas. Here we present an overview of the recent developments regarding NIST numerical and bibliographic atomic databases and outline the prospects and vision of their evolution.
