Strength of conformity of results

Three experimental groups and a team of theoreticians, different laboratories, different methods, and the results of their measurements of the intensities of the spectral lines agreed with each other at a promille level. This is the first case of its kind. The team of physicists from the Nicolaus Copernicus University has a large share in this scientific success.
