A list of data for the broadening by neutral hydrogen collisions of many astrophysically important spectral lines, which has been incorporated into the Vienna Atomic Line Database (VALD), is presented. Data for lines of neutral atoms are interpolated from the tabulated data of Anstee &
O'Mara, Barklem & O'Mara, and Barklem et al. . Data for lines of singly ionised atoms are compiled from the calculations by Barklem & O'Mara. The list at present contains data for 4891 lines between 2300 and 13000 Å of elements from Li to Ni. We examine the statistical impact of the new theory by comparison with the previously available
data. We also demonstrate the direct effect on spectral synthesis calculations.

The OpenURL standard is a protocol for transmission of metadata describing the resource that you wish to access.
An OpenURL link contains article metadata and directs it to the
OpenURL server of your choice. The OpenURL server can provide access
to the resource and also offer complementary services (specific

generated by different means.
If your librarian has set up your subscription with an
OpenURL resolver, OpenURL links appear automatically on the abstract pages.
