We report results of the experimental study of the singly charged beryllium spectral line 436.1 nm, transition , and forbidden component, transition , which is for the first time identified in this work. Beryllium lines are recorded from gas discharge, after ablation of a beryllium oxide discharge tube, running in pulsed regime with the following gases: helium with traces of hydrogen, argon with traces of hydrogen and pure krypton. The ratio of line intensities and wavelength separation of the Be II 436.1 nm line and neighbouring line located at the blue wing are followed in the electron density range (1.16–6.4) × 1022 m−3 determined from the hydrogen Balmer beta line () in the electron temperature interval between 10500 K and 15500 K. The functional dependence of the wavelength separation range and peak intensity ratio of these lines upon electron number density suggests the complex profile of the forbidden and allowed line, which can be used for diagnostics of low-temperature beryllium containing plasmas.
