NIST-LANL Lanthanide/Actinide Opacity Database

The database contains radiative line-binned opacities for lanthanides (atomic number 57<=Z<=70) and actinides (atomic number 89<=Z<=102) which are of paramount importance for simulation of light curves and spectra produced by kilonovae. The opacities were calculated by the LANL group under the assumption of local thermodynamic equilibrium. The temperature grid cover the range from 0.01 eV to 5.0 eV while the mass density grid covers 16 orders of magnitude. The database provide search and selection tools along with graphical and tabular outputs.
