The structure of the line λ = 613.4 nm (6p3 2P° − 7s 2P) in Bi I has been completely analyzed by means of a Fourier-transform spectrometer. From the intensity calculations it is seen that only 9 components of the possible 10 can be observed. The A and B constants are also calculated and compared with earlier results. The values of the levels 7s 2P and 6p3 2P° have been recalculated to be 49 460.91 ±0.01 and 33 164.82 ±0.01 cm−1, respectively.
