For a given set of plasma parameters, along a single series (Lyman, Balmer etc) the lines with higher
principal quantum number(n) lines get progressively wider, closer to each other,
and start merging for a certain critical n.
In the present work four different codes(with further options) are used to calculate the entire Balmer series for moderate and high electron densities. Particular attention is paid to the relevant physics, such as the cutoff criteria, strong and penetrating electron collisions.
Plasma spectroscopy; Line broadening; Series limit; Balmer lines; Inglis-Teller limit; line merging.
