ADC_Keywords: Atomic physics Keywords: planetary systems - astronomical data bases - physical data and processes Abstract: Line lists for the ground electronic ground state for the parent isotopologue of nitric oxide and five other major isotopologues are presented. The line lists are constructed using empirical energy levels (and line positions) and high-level ab inito intensities. The energy levels were obtained using a combination of two approaches, from an effective Hamiltonian and from solving the rovibronic Schroedinger equation variationally. The effective hamiltonian model was obtained through a fit to the experimental line positions of NO available in the literature for all six isotopologues using the programs SPFIT and SPCAT. The variational model was built through a least squares fit of the ab inito potential and spin-orbit curves to the experimentally derived energies and experimental line positions of the main isotopologue only using the Duo program. The ab inito potential energy, spin-orbit and dipole moment curves (PEC, SOC and DMC) are computed using high-level ab inito methods and the MARVEL method is used to obtain energies of NO from experimental transition frequencies. The line lists are constructed for each isotopologue based on the use of the most accurate energy levels and the ab inito DMC. Each line list covers a wavenumber range from 0-40000cm-1 with approximately 22,000 rovibronic states and 2.3-2.6 million transitions extending to J=184.5 and v=51. The computed NO line lists are the most comprehensive to date, covering a wider wavenumber and temperature range compared to both the HITRAN and HITEMP databases. These line lists are also more accurate than those used in HITEMP. The full line lists are available from Description: The states files contain lists of rovibronic states. Each state is labelled with the total angular momentum, state degeneracy, total parity, vibrational quantum number, projection of the electronic, spin and total angular momenta. Each state has a unique number, which is the number of the row in which it appears in the file. This number is the means by which the state is related to the second part of the data system, the transitions files. The lifetimes and Lande-g factors are also provided. The transition files t_*dat contain four columns: the reference number in the energy file of the upper state, that of the lower state, the Einstein A coefficient of the transition and the transition wavenumber. These entries are ordered by increasing frequency. The energy file and the transitions files are bzipped, and need to be extracted before use. The p_*.dat files contain the partition functions for the six isotopologues (0...5000K) tabulated in steps of 1K. The pf_param.dat contains unitless expansion parameters a_i of the partition functions extrapolated using the following form (Vidler & Tennyson, 2000, J. Chem. Phys., 113, 9766): log10(Q) = sum_i a_i [log10(T)]^i A sample programme to generate synthetic spectra from the ExoMol format line lists can be obtained at File Summary:
