Systematic mapping of high-lying even-parity levels (low-lying configurations) of the
samarium atom below the first ionization potential was carried out with a two-step
photoexcitation and photoionization method. Five hundred seventy-one new energy
levels were discovered in the region and an unambiguous assignment of angular momenta was
given to most of the energy levels in accordance with the electric dipole selection
