Accurate wavelengths and wavenumbers of over 22 000 dysprosium lines have been measured in the wavelength region 2300-11 400 Å. The Zeeman effect has been observed at a field strength of 24000 G from 2300 to 9000 Å. By comparison of relative intensities of the lines from sources under various conditions, 85% of the lines have been assigned as Dy I or Dy II spectrum lines. From the energy-level analysis, 141 even and 197 odd levels of Dy I are known. Combinations between these levels account for 1952 lines. For Dy II, 14 even and 214 odd levels are known, with 1000 lines classified. The ground levels of Dy I and Dy II are 4ƒ106s25I8 and 4ƒ106s6I8½, respectively. The lowest level of the 4ƒ95d6s2 configuration of Dy I lies 7565.62 cm-1 above the ground level. The g values for most of the levels of both spectra are given.
