Abstract

The high-dispersion absorption spectrum of Au I has been photographed in the 1300–1900 Å region. Observations include the 6<i>s</i><sup>2</sup><sub>1/2</sub> → <i>np</i><sup>2</sup><i>P</i><sup>0</sup><sub>3/2, 1/2</sub> transitions for <i>n</i> = 7 through <i>n</i> = 42, 5<i>d</i><sup>9</sup>6s<sup>2</sup><sup>2</sup><i>D</i><sub>5/2</sub> → <i>np</i><sup>2</sup><i>P</i><sup>0</sup>3/2 for <i>n</i> = 8 through 12, and transitions from 6s <sup>2</sup><i>S</i><sub>1/2</sub> to levels associated with the interloper configurations 5<i>d</i><sup>9</sup>6<i>s</i>6<i>p</i> and 5<i>d</i><sup>8</sup>6<i>s</i><sup>2</sup>6<i>p</i>. The ionization potential of Au I determined from the <i>np</i><sup>2</sup><i>p</i><sup>0</sup> series is 74 408.88 ± 0.17 cm<sup>-1</sup>.
