Abstract

The resonance line of F I at 954.825 A is detected in the interstellar spectra of Delta Sco, and possibly Delta Ori, and upper limits are obtained toward five other stars. It is noted that the equivalent width for Delta Sco of 10.9(+4.5, -3.1) in milliangstroms corresponds to a column density of 1.52(+0.60, -0.43) x 10 to the 13th/sq cm and a depletion of -0.53(+0.15, -0.14) dex. For the other lines of sight, depletions of at least 0.1-0.5 dex are inferred. The results are discussed in the context of current theories of the depletion process.
