This article outlines the main concepts of atomic structure, with some emphasis on terminology and notation. Atomic radiation is discussed, in particular the wavelengths, intensities, and shapes of spectral lines, and a few remarks are made regarding continuous spectra. We include updated tabulations of ionization energies for the neutral atoms and transition probabilities for persistent lines of selected neutral atoms.

The field of optical spectroscopy covers: investigations of single nano-objects (molecules, nanocrystals, quantum dots, metal particles, etc.). The aim of these lectures is to present the experimental techniques giving access to single objects.

Three essays deal with the application of the quantum theory to problems of atomic structure: On the spectrum of hydrogen - On the series spectra of the elements - The structure of the atom and the physical and chemical properties of the elements.

Three principal methods of modern spectrographic analysis are to be examined here: Mass Spectroscopy, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, and Infra-Red Spectroscopy. Used in concert, they allow the positive identification of many organic chemicals.
