Abstract

We have measured the absolute wave numbers of 39 transitions of ^130Te_2 spanning the spectral region of 420.9-464.6 nm to an accuracy of better than 2 parts in 10^9 by use of saturation spectroscopy and Fabry-Pérot interferometry. These measurements provide a set of convenient and accurate transfer standards for laser wavelength calibration spanning the entire Stilbene-420 dye-tuning curve.
