Legacy of Charlotte Moore Sitterly in the Internet Age

Abstract

Most (yet not all) results of atomic physics research of Charlotte Moore Sitterly (CMS), which was closely connected to astrophysics, are now incorporated in online databases, one of which is the Atomic Spectra Database of the National Institute of Standards and Technology. The use of this database extends far beyond astrophysics, but this review focuses on astrophysical applications. The impact of CMS's work on modern atomic physics and other sciences is discussed, and problems that urgently need solutions are outlined.
