Stark broadening of spectral lines along the isoelectronic sequence of B
Stark widths of 3s-3p and 3p-3d transitions in N(III)-Ne(VI) were measured in a plasma produced by the gas-liner pinch device. The scaling of measured Stark widths with the spectroscopic charge number shows appreciable deviations from that predicted by some theoretical calculations in the electron-impact approximation. A strong indication is found that proton collisions influence the linewidth of the 2s2p3s4P(0) - 2s2p3p4D transition in Ne(VI) in a significant way.
