The spectrum of Mo from 20 to 90 Å was obtained with a laser-produced plasma and a low-inductance vacuum spark. Wavelengths and line identifications were determined for transitions of the type 3d-4p and 3d-4f in Mo XIII–XVI and for 3p-3d type transitions in Mo XVI–XVIII. The line identifications were obtained with the aid of relativistically corrected Hartree-Fock calculations. Energy-level diagrams are given for the 3d84p and 3d84f configurations of Mo XVI.
