Abstract

We have undertaken, and almost completed, a new critical review of experimental data on Stark widths and shifts for spectral lines of non-hydrogenic neutral atoms and positive ions. This review covers the period from 1989 through the end of 1999 and represents a continuation of earlier critical reviews (1-5). The NIST bibliographical database on Atomic Spectral Line Broadening (6) and an earlier NIST Special Publication (7) have served as sources for all literature references. As in the earlier reviews, the data tables are presented with estimated accuracies (combined standard uncertainties) expressed with code letters. Guidelines for the accuracy estimates, developed during the previous reviews, are again applied. The data are arranged according to elements and spectra, and these are presented in alphabetical and numerical order, respectively. Twenty-six elements with 76 spectra are included in this review, as shown in Table 1, indicating that experimental plasma line broadening studies continue to be an active area. Also, these studies have expanded to higher ions, for example Ne VIII.
