## 4. Use of the CHIANTI databaseThe CHIANTI database contains both atomic data and a set of
routines which enable the line intensities to be calculated and
analysed. For this work, two of the authors (E. Landi and P. Young)
have used the atomic data but not the CHIANTI analysis routines,
instead they have interfaced their own existing routines to the atomic
data. In particular, E. Landi has used the new L-function method of
analysis (Landi & Landini 1997) to check the results obtained with
the intensity ratio method for several ions. P. Young has used
routines which allow the input of proton collision rates to the level
balance program - a feature not accounted for in the original version
(1.0) of CHIANTI. Thus, for this work, we have proton rates included
for the following ions: Ne VI, Mg VIII,
Si X, S XII, Fe X,
Fe XIII and Fe XIV. © European Southern Observatory (ESO) 1998 Online publication: November 24, 1997 |
