Atomic Physics Data for Stellar Atmospheres Research

  • Charles R. Cowley (a1), Saul J. Adelman (a2) and Donald J. Bord (a3)

Abstract

The review will cover the following topics: (1) Ionization energies; (2) Partition functions; (3) Sources of data for atomic and ionic wavelengths, transition probabilities, and broadening parameters, including nuclear effects (hfs and isotope shifts); (4) Opacities from photoionization of abundant elements (atoms and atomic ions) with emphasis on integration of TOPBASE material; and (5) Data bases for diatomic molecules. We emphasize topics of direct relevance to the synthesis of stellar spectra, primarily within the domain where LTE is useful. Additional parameters, such as line-broadening parameters, or excitation cross sections are not reviewed.
