Emission spectral line intensity

  1. Sep 26, 2010 #1
    Dear all

    I need to calculate the intensity of the spectral line. I have data from NIST website:
    wavelength, Aki (Einstein coefficient), gi, gk, Ei and Ek energy levels.

    How do i go about

    Thanks for your help

    Are you talking about the energy of the photon released from the atomic transition .

    The intensity of the radiation emitted when an electron transitions from a higher energy state to lower

    (Absolute) Intensity normally refers to photons per time.
    So: how many atoms are there? How are they excited? Do you know the (average) population of the levels? Do you mean relative or absolute intensitiy?
