Role of input atomic data in spectroscopic analyses of the Sun and metal-poor stars

Maria Bergemann (Max-Planck Institute for Astrophysics) Analysis of high-resolution stellar spectra relies heavily upon atomic data. These include energy levels, wavelengths, cross-sections for various types of interactions between particles and photons, such as photoionization and collision induced transitions. Quantum-mechanical calculations … Continue reading
