This article outlines the main concepts of atomic structure, with some 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 Physics Handbook, edited by Drake, this online version of Atomic Spectroscopy contains internal links as well as external links to spectroscopic data.
