BW86      R. Beigang and J. J. Wynne, J. Opt. Soc. Am. B 3, 949 (1986). The ionization energy determined by these authors was based on a value of 45945.4 cm-1 for the (3P)6s 4P3/2 level. We have lowered their value for the ionization energy by 0.06 cm-1 in accordance with the more accurate (3P)6s 4P3/2 level value tabulated here [HARV88].

C66b      C. Chan, Ph. D. Thesis, Univ. British Columbia (1966). The values Chan derived for the Sb II ionization energy from thirteen different 3-member series vary by up to several hundred cm-1. We have rounded off his adopted value to the nearest 100 cm-1.

SM02      J. E. Sansonetti and W. C. Martin (this work). Wavelengths are calculated from energy levels in [HARV88]. The relative intensities are from [MH42], except that we have increased the intensities for the 3 lines below 2000 Å to be more in accord with the scale used above 2000 Å. Although we have given the Sb I levels with LS-coupling designations as assigned by Hassini et al. [HARV88], their calculations show that several of the even-parity levels tabulated here have no meaningful term names; the average purity in the three (3P)5d "4P" levels, for example, is 32%.
