Since an earlier publication (Jackson & Coulombe 1972) concerning hyperfine structure in the arc spectrum of xenon many new measurements of these structures have been made in connexion with observations of isotope shifts; measurements have also been made of the hyperfine structures of a number of lines not previously investigated. Tables are given of the revised values and of the new values of the hyperfine structures and of the hyperfine structure constants A of the levels of 129Xe and A and B of the levels of 131Xe. The good agreement of the experimental values of the A constants for the levels of 129Xe and 131Xe with the values calculated by Liberman (1969, 1971) is not altered by the revised experimental values, while it is improved for the B constants of 131Xe. The average of the ratios of the A constants of five levels of 129Xe and 131Xe given by the revised and the new values is -3.376 ± 0.02, differing by 0.002 from the previously published value and by -0.001 from the ratio found from nuclear resonance measurements (Faust & McDermott 1961).
