On the basis of all the available observations of the Ne vi spectrum, particularly the new beam-foil spectra obtained at Liège University, approximately 50 new line assignments are proposed and approximately 30 new energy levels are determined in Ne vi. All known energy levels have been improved, and a new value is proposed for the ionization potential. The new line identifications are supported by Hartree–Fock calculations combined with parametric fitting of energies and transition rates.
