Wavenumbers of neon emission lines found with a Bruker IFS 125M Fourier spectrometer are presented. Spectral lines were used for the fine tuning of the Michelson interferometer of the Fourier spectrometer. The error in determination of line centers did not exceed ±0.003 cm−1. The radiation spectra found, having a high signal-to-noise ratio, can be used for the frequency grading of any spectrophotometers both at high and low resolutions. However, they would be most useful in the tuning of Fourier spectrometers in the visible spectral region.
