Al II - VERSION 8.0


The CHIANTI database has the following primary ASCII files for this ion:

  1. al_2.elvlc (energy levels)
  2. contains the energy levels (in cm-1). It includes both experimental and theoretical values of the levels energies.

     
    %filename: al_2.elvlc
    %observed energy levels: NIST database (http://physics.nist.gov/cgi-bin/AtData/main_asd)
    %theoretical energy levels: Aggarwal, K.M., & Keenan, F.P., 1998, J.Phys.B, 31, 4545
    %comment: Aggarwal & Keenan give only LS state energies

  3. al_2.wgfa (radiative data)
  4. contains wavelengths, gf and A values of the transitions. The wavelengths are based on the experimental energy levels and should be the best available. Wavelengths calculated from the theoretical energies are of an indeterminate accuracy and their values are presented as negative values of the calculated wavelength.

     
    %filename: al_2.wgfa
    %observed energy levels: NIST database (http://physics.nist.gov/cgi-bin/AtData/main_asd)
    %A-values (1-5, 3-4, 1-4): Zou, Y., Froese Fischer, C. 2001, J.Phys.B 34, 915
    %A-values (1-3): Trabert, E., Wolf, A., Linkemann, J., Tordoir, X., 1999, J.Phys.B, 32, 537
    %A-values (all other transitions): Young, P.R., SSTRUCT calculation for CHIANTI
    %comment: The 1-3 A-value is an experimental value with error bars: (3.28+/-0.10)*10^3 s^-1.
    %comment: The SSTRUCT model incorporated 50 configurations with n up to 5. Observed energy 
       levels were used to derive the A-values. f-values were compared with those of Tayal & Hibbert 
       (1984, J.Phys.B, 17, 3835) for singlet-singlet transitions and good agreement was found.
       Note that Tayal & Hibbert only gave LS A-values, and so these could not be used for CHIANTI.

  5. al_2.scups (electron collision data)
  6. contains the effective electron collision strengths scaled according to the rules formulated by Burgess and Tully (1992).

     
    %filename: al_2.splups
    %theoretical energies: Aggarwal, K.M., & Keenan, F.P., 1998, J.Phys.B, 31, 4545
    %theoretical energies: Aggarwal, K.M., & Keenan, F.P., 1994, J.Phys.B, 27, 5321 (except for transitions within multiplets where observed level splitting was used)
    %gf-values (transitions 1-5, 1-18, 2-7, 3-7, 4-7, 5-6, 6-18): Aggarwal, K.M., & Keenan, F.P., 1994, J.Phys.B, 27, 2343
    %gf-values (remaining transitions): P.R.Young, 2003, SSTRUCT calculation (see .wgfa file)
    %effective collision strengths: Aggarwal, K.M., & Keenan, F.P., 1994, J.Phys.B, 27, 5321
    %effective collision strengths between triplet states: Aggarwal, K.M., & Keenan, F.P., 1998, J.Phys.B, 31, 4545
    %comment: Only transitions involving levels 1-4 and 6 were fitted, as these are the only levels with significant population at astrophysical densities.
