Wavelengths, Transition Probabilities, and Energy Levels for the Spectra of Potassium (K I through K XIX)

Published

Author(s)

Jean E. Sansonetti

Abstract

Energy levels, with classifications and uncertainties, have been compiled for the spectra of the neutral atom and all positive ions of potassium (Z=19). Wavelengths with classifications, intensities, and transition probabilities are also tabulated. In addition, ground states and ionization energies are listed. For many ionization stages experimental data are available; however for those for which only theoretical calculations or fitted values exist, these are reported.
