Notes

1Normal isotopic mixture.
2Slightly different constants in Shah, 1970.
3Radiative lifetime tau(v=0,1) = 32.5 ns Dagdigian, Cruse, et al., 1974.
4Four heads.
5Radiative lifetime tau(v=0)= 42.9 ns Dagdigian, Cruse, et al., 1974.
6Double heads on account of large spin doubling in the upper state. Constants refer to the short-wavelength head.
7Radiative lifetime tau(v=1) = 34.0 ns Dagdigian, Cruse, et al., 1974.
8Four heads. For a reproduction of the spectrum see Fig. 1e of Hayes and Nevin, 1955 who wrongly attributed the spectrum to MnBr.
9Flame photometric value Gurvich, Ryabova, et al., 1973, Khitrov, Ryabova, et al., 1973.
