Abstract (from CDS):

We present a spectral atlas of the Hβ region for 215 type 1 AGNs (luminous Seyfert 1/radio galaxy nuclei and low-z quasars) up to z~0.8. Line profiles and measures were derived from the database of intermediate resolution spectra (R≳1000) with average continuum level S/N ratio ~30. Parameters including rest frame equivalent width and FWHM are provided for the Fe IIoptblend at λ4570, Hβ, He II λ4686, and the [O III] λλ4959, 5007 emission lines. We extract clean broad component Hβ profiles and provide wavelength measurements at 0, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, and 0.9 peak intensity levels in order to permit a quantitative definition of the Hβ broad component for statistical studies. We also discuss sources of uncertainty, selection effects, and biases in our sample. The data are especially important for tests of the eigenvector 1 parameter space occupation and correlation. We show that the I Zw 1 template Fe IIoptspectrum reproduces well the observed Fe IIoptemission for a wide range of line width and strength. A detailed analysis of the data within the eigenvector 1 context is deferred to a companion paper.
