S IV - VERSION 8.0


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

  1. s_4.elvlc (energy levels)
  2. contains the energy levels (in cm-1). It includes both experimental and theoretical values of the levels energies.

     
    %filename: s_4.elvlc                              
    %observed energy levels: Fuhr, J.R. et al., "NIST Atomic Spectra Database" Ver. 2.0, March 1999, 
        NIST Physical Reference Data
    %theoretical energy levels: Tayal S.S., 2000, ApJ, 530, 1091

  3. s_4.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.

    %observed energy levels: Fuhr, J.R. et al., "NIST Atomic Spectra Database" Ver. 2.0, March 1999,
        NIST Physical Reference Data
    %A-values all allowed transitions between 3s2.3p and 3s.3p^2, 3s2.3d, 3s2.4s 
        configurations (levels up to 13): Hibbert, A., Brage, T., Fleming, J. 2002, MNRAS 333, 885
    %A-values all other allowed transitions: Tayal S.S., J.Phys.B 32, 5311, 1999
    %A-values ground transition: Johnson C.T., Kingston A.E., Dufton P.L., MNRAS 220, 155, 1986
    %A-values transitions involving levels 17 to 20: Young P.R., unpublished Superstructure calculation
    %comment: An error in Table 7 of Hibbert et al. 2002 has been corrected. The A-value for 
        the 2-6 transition is given as 2.251(+8) when it should be 2.251(+7).
    %comment: Note that Tayal gives f values rather than gf values so I had to multiply his 
        numbers by the stat. weight of the lower level.
    %comment: No A-values are available in the literature for the 4F levels 17 to 20. I've run 
        Superstructure with a model of the ion containing the 10 configurations of Tayal's model. 
        The gf and A-values were computed with observed energy levels.

  5. s_4.scups (electron collision data)
  6. contains the effective electron collision strengths scaled according to the rules formulated by Burgess and Tully (1992).

     
    %filename: s_4.upsdat
    %oscillator strengths: Tayal S.S., 1999, J.Phys.B, 32, 5311
    %effective collision strengths: Tayal S.S., 2000, ApJ, 530, 1091
    %comment: The upsilons provided by Tayal were only given to 3 decimal places
    and so where the upsilons are small, accuracy is lost.
    I have not fitted the transitions from levels 3 to 5 up to levels 51
    to 52, as the decimal place problem is particularly bad for these
    transitions.
    I have fitted all transitions involving levels 1 to 5, and level 20
    (other than the ones mentioned above). Level 20 is metastable.
    Tayal only tabulates transitions from levels 1 to 10 to higher levels.
    The transitions from levels 11-52 to level 20 may have a significant
    affect on the level balance.
    In general, there were no problems in fitting this data-set. However
    the allowed transitions between levels 3 to 5 and levels 40 to 42 had
    high temperature limit points that were significantly higher than
    suggested by the actual upsilons (around a factor 2 higher).
    %comment: effective collision strengths were provided in the temperature range 4.0 < Log T < 5.6
