J/A+A/503/541  Neutral Li in late-type stars non-LTE calculations  (Lind+, 2009)

Departures from LTE for neutral Li in late-type stars. Lind K., Asplund M., Barklem P.S. <Astron. Astrophys. 503, 541 (2009)> =2009A&A...503..541L

Non-LTE abundance corrections for the lithium resonance line at 670.7nm and the subordinate line at 610.3nm, are calculated using 1D MARCS model atmospheres spanning a large grid in effective temperature, surface gravity, and metallicity, and lithium abundance. The competing effects of ultraviolet over-ionization and photon losses in the resonance line govern the behaviour of the non-LTE effects with stellar parameters and lithium abundance. The size and sign of the non-LTE abundance corrections vary significantly over the grid for the 670.7nm line, but are typically positive and below 0.15dex for the 610.3nm line. The new collisional data play a significant role in determining the abundance corrections. Description: Non-LTE abundance corrections and equivalent widths for atmospheric models in the stellar parameter range Teff=[4000,8000]K, log(g)=[1.0,5.0], [Fe/H]=[0.0,-3.0], and microturbulence [1.0,5.0]km/s. The lithium abundance ranges between A(Li)=[-0.3,4.2]. An IDL-code for interpolation between table-values can be obtained on request to klind(at) File Summary:
