  Spectral line Summary
The spectral lines observed in the absorption and emission spectra of atoms or molecules are the result of transitions occurring between different energy levels as electromagnetic radiation is absorbed or emitted.
A spectral line is a dark or bright line in an otherwise uniform and continuous spectrum, resulting from an excess or deficiency of photons in a narrow frequency range, compared with the nearby frequencies.
Spectral lines are the result of interaction between a quantum system (usually atoms, but sometimes molecules or atomic nuclei) and single photons.

The essential difference between optical line spectra and X-ray spectra is that the former correspond to energy changes in the outer electrons in an atom, and the latter to energy changes in the inner electron orbitals.

However, this is not true when the star is moving towards us (the lines are observed at shorter wavelengths, or 'blueshifted, than those measured in the laboratory) or moving away from us (observed at longer wavelengths, or 'redshifted').
An emission line at 587.6 nm was first observed in the Solar corona during the eclipse of 1868 August 18th, although the precise wavelength was difficult to establish at the time (due to the short observation using temporary set-ups of instruments transported to Asia).
She applied the up-to-date theory of spectral line formation, and found that the chemical compositions of stars were probably all similar, the temperature being the important factor in creating their diverse appearances.

 Stellar Properties from Spectral Lines - Intro
The spectral lines of a star contain a wealth of information because their formation is sensitive to the conditions present in the star's atmoshere.
The spectral lines are formed by the absorption of photons as electrons jump from a lower energy level to a higher one.
Again, as with temperature, if you look at lines due to atoms in two different ionization states, you can calculate the number of absorbers which must be present (given the temperature and surface gravity which derermine how many of the atoms have electrons in the proper energy level to cause the spectral line).

 MPIfR Sub(mm) Group Science -- Spectral line surveys
In fact, unbiased spectral line surveys are necessary to obtain an unbiased view of the chemistry of a specific region.
We assume that the line emission of each molecule is a superposition of several radiatively non-interacting components, each of which can be described by a source size, column density, velocity width, velocity offset and a single rotation temperature.
The disadvantage of all deconvolution methods is that pointing shifts result in line shape and strength changes for the various measurements of the same line (due to the structured source), which results in spurious features in the synthesized SSB spectrum.

These are tuning values for given spectral lines that will be observed in a sequence which is coordinated with the science camera (see Section 5).
The line center tunings for all available spectral lines have been calibrated in the laboratory and stored in a file called "filt.dat" in the TF source code directory.
TF line calibration consists of placing the photometer behind the filter and recording light levels as the filter is tuned through a specified range around a given line.

 Spectroscopy
The study of spectral lines is known as spectroscopy and is heavily used in astronomy.
By studying how their spectral lines are shifted by their motions with respect to Earth, scientists can determine not only their characteristic motions but also estimate the forces responsible, particularly gravity.
Finally, since spectral lines reveal the presence of specific atoms and molecules in space, these same components can serve as tracers of the physical conditions in their surroundings, particularly those of temperature, density, and pressure.

 Scheduling EVN spectral line observations
Note that target lines should be located close to the center of the frequency band because the band edges have lower sensitivity and can have large phase offsets.
If a line source has a wide velocity coverage, overlapping a part of the frequency (velocity) coverage between two frequency bands may be a good idea to see a part of the line components in the two bands.
When several line sources are observed with different frequency setups in one observation, AIPS requires bandpass calibrators to be observed with the same setups, so independently for each target.

 3.11 Spectral line mapping
The principles of post-correlation spectral line data reduction are no different from multi-channel continuum processing.
The experiment must be designed so that on either side of the line emission there are sufficient continuum-only channels which will give a high enough signal to noise ratio (when added together) to subtract the continuum accurately.
The general procedures are similar to §3.8.8 but the bp-cal and the target and any other sources to be processed in line mode must be carefully inspected for interference at an early stage in data processing.

 Spectral Line Shape Studies at Toronto   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Although the absolute frequency accuracy is limited to.02 /cm 600 MHz by the variation (daily) of the frequency of the ion laser and the accuracy of the wavemeter in the dye laser, we routinely measure pressure shifts with a 10 MHz accuracy relative to the line origin.
In addition to improving our understanding of line shape models, measurements of the line widths and integrated intensities are relevant to such fields as atmospheric pollution studies.
Recently completed research includes line shift and width measurements of depolarized Q branch spectra in D2, line shift measurements in C02, non-Lorentzian features in the P and R branches in CO, line mixing in D2, and the widths and shifts of the vibrational O and S branches in D2 at 100K.
