The irradiancesof 37 spectral lines emitted bymercury pencil-type lamps were measuredby comparison with calibrated continuum sources. The lines span the region 230-590 nm. For the 14 most prominent lines the absolute irradiances should be useful for radiometric calibrations at an uncertainty level of ~15% 195% confidence2. The ratios of the irradiances for this same group of lines are significantly more reproducible; they should be useful at an uncertainty level of ~10%.
