The measurement of oscillator strengths in the presence of resonance self-broadening

by Bieniewski, Thomas Mark

Abstract (Summary)
NOTE: Text or symbols not renderable in plain ASCII are indicated by [...]. Abstract is included in .pdf document. The absolute oscillator strengths for the silver resonance lines, Ag I [...] 3281 and 3383, and the cadmium intersystem line, Cd I [...] 3261, were measured from the total absorption for both weak lins and strong lines. For strong lines, cross sections for selfbroadening were measured for the resonance lines of silver, lead, thallium, cadmium, and zinc. In the limit of large oscillator strengths, good agreement has been obtained with theory, while for small oscillator strengths, only qualitative agreement has been found.
