Accurate Atomic Transition Probabilities for Hydrogen, Helium, and Lithium

Wiese, W. L.; Fuhr, J. R.

We have carried out a comprehensive tabulation of the atomic transition probabilities for allowed and forbidden lines of hydrogen, helium and lithium, including Li II, as well as the hydrogen isotopes deuterium and tritium. Altogether, we tabulated about 3600 transitions and listed scaling relations for the hydrogenlike ions He II and Li III. The selected data are based on a critical evaluation of available literature sources and are all taken from recent advanced calculations. The tables are normally arranged in multiplets, and these are ordered in increasing excitation energies. For hydrogen, deuterium, and tritium, the energy levels are degenerate, i.e., all energy levels of the same principal quantum number essentially coincide. Thus, the principal tables for these species are for the average transition probabilities of lines between different principal quantum numbers.
