  • The Collision Database (C. Vastel, 25 May 2018)
  • The aim of this database is to provide the community the most up-to-date database on the collisional coefficients to be used with the RADEX radiative transfer modelling. To date there are two updated collision databases: The LAMDA database maintained by F. van der Tak at the Leiden University (Netherlands) and the Basecol database maintained by M.-L. Dubernet at the Paris observatory (France). The LAMDA database has the advantage to provide collision files directly used with the RADEX tool. The Basecol database does not generate files directly used with this tool. RADEX is implemented within the CASSIS software and CASSIS needs to adress the quantum numbers associated with the molecular/atomic transitions to perform line identification and generate synthetic spectra for example. With this project I am trying to gather the most up-to-date collision files provided by LAMDA, BASECOL, and by the scientists feeding the databases (e.g. F. Lique, A. Faure). I then made those files compatible with their associated molecular database (JPL and/or CDMS) so that the quantum numbers, Einstein coefficients, upper energy levels and rest frequencies match. Indeed, some species may have less quantum numbers from database to another. Currently the database contains data for 76 molecular species. Several isotopomers and deuterated versions are also available. Work is currently underway to add more datafiles. We encourage comments from the users in order to improve and extend the database. Here is below the proposed collision files to be used in CASSIS. You can download the files of interest and, when using the LTE-RADEX modelling within CASSIS, select your file using Ctrl + left click under the "Collision" tab. Note that they are not the default one within CASSIS. They should be implemented in the next version. For the moment the list of the collision files implemented in CASSIS can be found here.
