Oscillator Strengths for High-level Transitions in Hydrogen

  title={Oscillator Strengths for High-level Transitions in Hydrogen},
  author={Donald Howard Menzel},
TRANSITIONS between high quantum levels of atomic hydrogen can produce spectral lines in the radio region. Observers have detected a number of such emissions from hydrogen gas in various radio sources. Theoretical interpretation of such observations requires knowledge of the oscillator strengths fn+c,n for transitions described by the quantum transition n+c→n. For n large and c small, the fs follow the asymptotic formula with Jc(c) is the Bessel function of equal order and argument and J′c(c… 
Physical Sciences: Level Populations of Excited States of Hydrogen in Gaseous Nebulae
Calculations of the population densities of all the levels of high quantum number n and over a large range of temperatures and densities are made to deduce physical parameters such as temperatures and abundances.
Theoretical intensities of low frequency recombination lines
The possibility of observable recombination lines below 200 MHz is shown to be greatest for the case of negative absorption in low-density gas in front of strong radio sources. The amplification of
On the calculation of line strengths, oscillator strengths and lifetimes for very large principal quantum numbers in hydrogenic atoms and ions by the McLean–Watson formula
As a sequel to an earlier study (Hey 2009 J. Phys. B: At. Mol. Opt. Phys. 42 125701), we consider further the application of the line strength formula derived by Watson (2006 J. Phys. B: At. Mol.

Low Frequency Carbon Radio Recombination Lines II: The Diffuse Interstellar Medium
In the second paper of the series, we have modeled low-frequency carbon radio recombination lines (CRRLs) from the interstellar medium. Anticipating the Low Frequency Array survey of Galactic CRRLs,
