Context. Models of stellar spectra are necessary for interpreting light from individual stars, planets, integrated stellar populations, nebulae, and the interstellar medium. Aims: We provide a comprehensive and homogeneous collection of synthetic spectra for a wide range of atmospheric parameters and chemical compositions. Methods: We compile atomic and molecular data from the literature. We adopt the largest and most recent set of ATLAS9 model atmospheres, and use the radiative code ASSɛT. Results: The resulting collection of spectra is made publicly available at medium and high-resolution (R ≡ λ/δλ = 10 000, 100 000 and 300 000) spectral grids, which include variations in effective temperature between 3500 K and 30 000 K, surface gravity (0 ≤ log g ≤ 5), and metallicity (-5 ≤ [Fe/H] ≤ +0:5), spanning the wavelength interval 120-6500 nm. A second set of denser grids with additional dimensions, [α/Fe] and micro-turbulence, are also provided (covering 200-2500 nm). We compare models with observations for a few representative cases. Data files are only available at the CDS via anonymous ftp to http://cdsarc.u-strasbg.fr ( or via http://cdsarc.u-strasbg.fr/viz-bin/qcat?J/A+A/618/A25

Chemical Abundances in Stars

Stellar spectroscopy allows us to determine the properties and chemical compositions of stars. From this information for stars of different ages in the Milky Way, it is possible to reconstruct the chemical evolution of the Galaxy, as well as the origin of the elements heavier than boron, created mainly in stellar interiors. It is also possible to
