Ar XV - VERSION 8.0


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

  1. ar_15.elvlc (energy levels)
  2. contains the energy levels (in cm-1). It includes both experimental and theoretical values of the levels energies.

     
    %filename: ar_15.elvlc
    %observed energy levels (1-10): Edlen, B., 1983, Phys. Scr., 28, 51
    %observed energy levels (6,7,8): Edlen, B., 1985, Phys. Scr., 32, 86
    %observed energy levels (level 15): Lepson et al., 2003, ApJ, 590, 604
    %Observed energy levels (n=3): Khardi et al, 1994, Physica Scripta, 49, 571
    %Theoretical energy levels: 27-conf model from Bhatia & Landi, 2008, ADNDT, 94, 223
    % produced as part of the Arcetri/Cambridge/NRL 'CHIANTI' atomic data base collaboration

    %  E. Landi - Dec 2006
     
    

  3. ar_15.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.
