References contained in this database are from Bibliography on Atomic Energy Levels and Spectra, NBS Special
Publication 363 and Supplements, as well as current references since the
last published bibliography collected by the
NIST Atomic Spectroscopy Group.
These references pertain to atomic structure
and spectra that arise from interactions or excitations involving
electrons in the outer shells of free atoms and atomic ions,
or from inner shell excitations corresponding to frequencies up
to the soft x-ray range.
Please note that this database does not contain references
to atomic transition probabilities, line intensities, or broadening.
These references can be found in another two bibliographic databases
maintained maintained by the same Group:
NIST Atomic Transition Probability Bibliographic Database and
NIST Atomic Spectral Line Broadening Bibliographic Database.
References to publications containing critically compiled data can be found in a separate database of
NIST compilations of atomic spectroscopy data.
