The Lisbon Atomic Database (LISA) has a dedicated mission of compiling and providing a comprehensive collection of atomic parameters for the study of the interaction of X-rays with matter. This encompassing array of parameters spans a broad spectrum, extending from the calculation of electron impact ionization cross sections (EIICS) using the Modified Relativistic Binary Encounter Bethe model (MRBEB) , to pivotal data such as fluorescence and Coster–Kronig yields of atomic subshells, binding energies, and the full suite of radiative and non-radiative atomic transition parameters. Except for the EIICS values, all these parameters are obtained through ab initio calculations. These calculations are carried out using a self-consistent ab initio Multi-Configuration Dirac–Fock approach, supported by a specialized code developed by Desclaux, Indelicato, and others (MCDFGME).
