High resolution spectra of neutral silver have been recorded by Fourier Transform Spectrometry in the region 2 000-8 280 Å(50 000-12 000 cm-1) with silver-neon and silver-argon hollow cathode lamps as sources. This work represents order-of-magnitude improvements, compared to previous work on Ag I, in accuracy of transition wavelengths and wavenumbers, and energy level values. 35 classified Ag I transitions are given, and the wavenumber uncertainty for the strongest lines is less than 0.002 cm-1. Improved values for 28 energy levels are presented.
