Abstract: AbstractA major avenue in the study of the Galaxy is the investigation of stellar populations and Galactic chemical evolution by stellar spectroscopy. Due to the dust obscuration, stars in the centre of the Galaxy can only be observed in the near-IR wavelength region. However, existing line lists in this wavelength region are demonstratively not of good enough quality for use in stellar spectroscopy. In response to this, we have developed an empirical astrophysical line list in the K-band based on modelling ag…
