The hyperfine structure of 40 levels of neutral manganese has been studied by means of Fourier transform emission spectroscopy. The light source was a home-made 99.5% pure manganese hollow-cathode lamp. From the analysis of the line profiles observed in the visible and infrared regions, we have been able to deduce new magnetic dipole constants for 18 levels and to revise previous results for 22 additional levels.
