Abstract

In this brief report we describe some of the background for our continuing efforts toward a new comprehensive data base for x-ray transitions, and indicate the present status of this effort, one that is still a work in progress. In contrast to previous, entirely empirical compilations, ours uses advanced theoretical calculations combined with a sparse network of accurate experimental measurements. The theoretical results closely reproduce high quality experimental data, where they are available, for atoms from Z=22 to Z=90. This suggests that the theoretical estimates are potentially useful in cases where adequate experimental data are absent. Above and below this range, problems emerge which need further examination both theoretically and experimentally.
