View Resource Atomic Spectroscopy: A Compendium of Basic Ideas, Notation, Data, and Formulas

Hosted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), this article by W. Martin and W. Wiese introduces the basics of atomic structure and spectra. With regard to structure, there is an emphasis on terminology and notation. Topics of discussion include wavelengths, intensities, shapes of spectral lines, and LS coupling. Originally appearing in the Atomic, Molecular, and Optical...

View Resource The Joy of Visual Perception: A Web Book

Peter Kaiser, an emeritus professor at York University, created this website about visual perception to supplement curriculum. After reading the introduction describing how to best utilize the materials, students and educators can find twenty four chapters covering many topics including, physics of the visual stimulus, the basics of Fourier analysis, and spectral sensitivity. For each topic, the...
