4. Summary

We present VUV oscillator strength measurements for the tex2html_wrap_inline925 multiplet (#8) of Fe II from the high sensitivity absorption experiment at University of Wisconsin-Madison. The absorption f-values are accurate to tex2html_wrap_inline929. While this work focuses on Fe II, the method is applicable to many elements in the periodic table, both neutral and singly ionized species, over a wide range of wavelength and line strength.
