J/A+A/520/A57     New FeII energy levels from stellar spectra  (Castelli+, 2010)

New Fe II energy levels from stellar spectra. Castelli F., Kurucz R.L. <Astron. Astrophys. 520, A57 (2010)> =2010A&A...520A..57C
ADC_Keywords: Atomic physics ; Line Profiles ; Models, atmosphere ; Spectroscopy ; Stars, peculiar Keywords: line: identification - atomic data - stars: atmospheres - stars: chemically peculiar - stars: individual: HR 6000 Abstract: The spectra of B-type and early A-type stars show numerous unidentified lines in the whole optical range, especially in the 5100-5400Å interval. Because FeII transitions to high energy levels should be observed in this region, we used semiempirical predicted wavelengths and gf-values of FeII to identify unknown lines. Semiempirical line data for FeII computed by Kurucz are used to synthesize the spectrum of the slow-rotating, Fe - overabundant CP star HR6000. Description: FeII lines in the 3800-8000Å region, produced by transitions to the FeII subconfigurations (3P)4f, (3H)4f, (3F)4f, and (3G)4f are given in Tables 6, 7, 8, and 9, respectively. Only lines with loggf≥-1.5 are listed. Most of these lines can be observed in the UVES spectrum of HR 6000 and have allowed us to identify more than 50% of the previously unidentified lines (Castelli & Hubrig, 2007A&A...475.1041C).
