Ca XV - VERSION 8.0


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

  1. ca_15.elvlc (energy levels)
  2. contains the energy levels (in cm-1). It includes both experimental and theoretical values of the levels energies.

     
    %filename: ca_15.elvlc
    %energy levels (n=2): Edlen, B., 1985, Phys.Scripta, 31, 345
    %energy levels (n=3): Martin, W.C., Sugar, J., Musgrove, A., Dalton, G.R., 1995,
       NIST Database for Atomic Spectroscopy, Version 1.0, NIST Standard Reference Database 61.
    %Theoretical energy levels (1-15) : 3 conf model of SSTRUCT
    %Theoretical energy levels (16-46) : Bhatia, A.K., Doschek, G.A., 1993, ADNDT, 53, 195
    % produced as part of the Arcetri/Cambridge/NRL 'CHIANTI' atomic data base collaboration

    %  E.Landi and P.R.Young 2000
     
    

  3. ca_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.

     
    %filename: ca_15.wgfa
    %observed energy levels (n=2): Edlen, B., 1985, Physica Scripta, 31, 345
    %observed energy levels (n=3): Martin, W.C., Sugar, J., Musgrove, A., Dalton, G.R., 1995,
       NIST Database for Atomic Spectroscopy, Version 1.0, NIST Standard Reference Database 61.
    %oscillator strengths (6-46 transitions) : Bhatia, A.K., Doschek, G.A., 1993, ADNDT, 53, 195
    %A values: Froese Fischer & Saha, 1985, Phys. Scripta 32, 181 
    %comment: Theoretical energies were used by Froese Fischer & Saha to derive
    	 the transition probabilities, but as the theoretical energies
    	 tabulated in the above paper did not differ from the observed
    	 values by more than 0.5%, it was not deemed necessary to re-scale
    	 the A values to account for this.
    %comment: negative wavelengths have been computed using theoretical energy levels

  5. ca_15.scups (electron collision data)
  6. contains the effective electron collision strengths scaled according to the rules formulated by Burgess and Tully (1992).

     
    %filename: ca_15.splups
    %oscillator strengths: are taken from "superstructure" using a 3
    configuration model of the ion, which was shown to closely match the
    'HF+2p4' oscillator strengths found in Aggarwal, 1983, J.Phys.B, 16, 2231
    %collision strengths transitions 6-46 : Bhatia, A.K., Doschek, G.A., 1993, ADNDT, 53, 195
    %effective collision strengths (transitions 1 - 15): Aggarwal, Berrington & Keenan, 1991, ApJS, 77, 441
    %comment: the authors regard their collisional model to be accurate to ~10%.
    %comment: effective collision strengths were given in the temperature range 5.0 < Log T < 7.0.

  7. ca_15.psplups (proton collision data)
  8. contains the spline fits to the scaled proton collision strengths.
