Ni II - VERSION 8.0


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

  1. ni_2.elvlc (energy levels)
  2. contains the energy levels (in cm-1). It includes both experimental and theoretical values of the levels energies.

     
    %filename:  ni_2.elvlc
    %Observed energies: Ver. 3 of the NIST Atomic Database
    %Theoretical energies: none provided by Bautista (2004) so observed energies used.
    %Comment: The energies given to levels 11 and 12 by Bautista are reversed compared
       to those in NIST. The NIST values are used here.
       Bautista did not give the parent terms for the Ni II levels. These
       have been derived from the energy level compilation at NIST.

  3. ni_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: ni_2.wgfa
    %Observed energies: Ver. 3 of the NIST Atomic Database
    %A-values: Quinet & Le Dourneuf, 1996, A&AS, 119, 99
    %A-values: Nussbaumer, H., & Storey, P.J., 1982, A&A, 110, 295
    %Comment: Nussbaumer & Storey data were used for transitions 1-2, 3-4, 
       1-5, 1-6, 12-11, 9-17 and 13-17. For all other transitions Quinet & Le Dourneuf were used.

  5. ni_2.scups (electron collision data)
  6. contains the effective electron collision strengths scaled according to the rules formulated by Burgess and Tully (1992).

     
    %filename: ni_2.splups
    %Effective collision strengths: Bautista, M., 2004, A&A, 420, 763
    %Theoretical energy levels: none provided by Bautista (2004) so observed energies from .elvlc file were used
    %Comment: The spline fits reproduce the original upsilons to 0.60% or better
    over the temperature range 2000-30,000 K
