Some historic and current aspects of plasma diagnostics using atomic spectroscopy

Hutton, Roger; Zou, Yaming; Andersson, Martin; Brage, Tomas LU and Martinson, Indrek LU (2010) In Journal of Physics B: Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics 43(14).
Abstract
In this paper we give a short introduction to the use of atomic spectroscopy in plasma diagnostics. Both older works and exciting new branches of atomic physics, which have relevance to diagnostics, are discussed. In particular we focus on forbidden lines in Be-like ions, lines sensitive to magnetic fields and levels which have a lifetime dependence on the nuclear spin of the ion, i.e. f-dependent lifetimes. Finally we mention a few examples of where tokamaks, instead of needing atomic data, actually provide new data and lead to developments in atomic structure studies.
