Quantum Physics

  1. May 19, 2008 #1
    Hi Guys! *waves*

    Anyway, I was just wondering what conditions and in what state are atoms sufficiently isolated so that it gives rise to a line spectra.

    I thank you all for any help you provide in advance.

    Many thanks,

    The spectra of atoms consist of discrete lines determined by transitions between bound electron energy levels. I am not sure what you are thinking about when you ask about "isolated".
