ARC (Alkali.ne Rydberg Calculator)
ARC (Alkali.ne Rydberg Calculator) is package of routines written in Python, using object-oriented programming (OOP) to make modular, reusable and extendable collection of routines and data for performing useful calculations of single atom and two-atom properties, like level diagrams, interactions and transition strengths for alkali metal and divalent atoms.
Start by installing the latest version of the ARC package calling Python pip (see prerequisites) from the command line:
pip install ARC-Alkali-Rydberg-Calculator
For documentation see online documentation on Read The Docs.
For examples of use check IPython example notebooks.
For online access to a selection of package functions see online Atom Calculator.
