Si VII - VERSION 8.0


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

  1. si_7.elvlc (energy levels)
  2. contains the energy levels (in cm-1). It includes both experimental and theoretical values of the levels energies.

     
    %filename: si_7.elvlc
    %observed energy levels (n=2): Edlen, B. 1983, Physica Scripta, 28, 51
    %observed energy levels (12,19,23-26,65-67,69,70,72-74,78-82,84,85): Fuhr, J.R., et al.,

    %observed energy levels (16-18,20,21,29,31-34,40-42,46,48,52,55,57,59,62,63): Kink, I., Jupen, C.,
         Engstroem, L., Feldman, U., Laming, J.M., Schuehle, U., 1997, ApJ, 487, 956
    %observed energy levels (11,13-15,22,28,30,35-37,43-45,47,49-51,53,54,56,60,61,64,68,71,75-77,86):
         Kink, I., Engstroem, L., 1997, Physica Scripta, 56, 31
    %theoretical energy levels: From the 24-configuration model by Bhatia, A.K., Landi, E., 2003, ApJ, 585, 587
    % Comment: The observed energy of level 11 is in reality theoretical. It has been inserted so that
               energies of levels 16,17,18 could be determined from its value and the experimental
               energy difference measured by Kink et al 1997 from transitions involving each of these levels
               with level 11. The energy of levels 40,41,42 has then been determined from the energy difference
               measured by Kink  et al 1997 for the transitions between levels 16-18 and 40-42.
               This means that the absolute energies of levels 16,17,18,40,41,42 are probably offset by
               a constant value, but their energy difference is experimentally correct. This allows
               CHIANTI to correctly calculate the transition wavelengths from these levels, to reproduce
               lines observed by SUMER in solar active and quiet spectra.

  3. si_7.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.
