A multiconfiguration Dirac-Fock (MCDF) technique has been used for computing the wavelengths and transition probabilities for lines in the X-ray spectra of the gallium-like ions from Yb XL to U LXII. Results are presented for the 4s(2)4p-4s(2)4d and 4s(2)4p-4s4p(2) allowed transitions (E1) as well as for the forbidden transitions (M1 and E2) within the ground configuration 4s(2)4p.

Experimental branching fractions for laser lines arising from excited states of 5d97s configuration of Au II have been determined by application of Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS). The experimental relative transition probabilities were converted into an absolute scale using theoretical values for the radiative lifetimes of the corresponding states, calculated in this work. Transition probabilities and radiative lifetimes have been determined by a relativistic Hartree - Fock method taking configuration interaction and core-polarization effects into account. A comparison of the present results with the available theoretical values has been made and shows a reasonable agreement although discrepancies are observed between theory and experiment for some transitions.

A laser probing investigation has yielded the lifetimes of the 3s23p41D3d 2G7=2;9=2 metastable doublet states of Ar. The results, obtained with the CRYRING ion storage ring of Stockholm, are 3:0 0:4 and 2:1 0:1 s, respectively. Comparisons with theoretical values calculated with two independenttheoretical approaches, i.e., the pseudorelativistic Hartree-Fock method and the multiconfiguration Breit-Pauli approach, have allowed us to establish the unexpected and extraordinary strong contribution of an electric octupole (E3) transition to the ground state, in addition to the M1 decay channels to the 3d 2;4F states and the E2 contributions to the 4s 2P, 2D states.

Oscillator strengths have been calculated for the transitions depopulating levels of the 3s(2)3p(3), 3s3p(4) configurations of K V, of the 3s(2)3p(2), 3s3p(3) configurations of K VI and of the 3s(2)3p, 3s3p(2), 3p(3) and 3s3p3d configurations of K VII. A multiconfiguration Dirac-Fock method, incorporating the relativistic two-body Breit interaction and quantum electrodynamics corrections due to self-energy and vacuum polarization, has been used for the calculations. The reliability of this approach has been tested by comparison with relativistic Hartree-Fock calculations and also with some experimental measurements performed by beam-foil spectroscopy at a beam energy of 1.7 MeV.

Radiative lifetimes of three odd-parity levels of neutral gold (Au I) and one odd-parity level of singly ionized gold (Au II), measured using the time-resolved laser-induced fluorescence technique, have allowed the testing of the reliability of a relativistic Hartree-Fock model of the atomic structure taking configuration interaction and core-polarization effects into account. The importance of the inclusion of the latter effects in the calculations is emphasized. The laser-induced fluorescence lifetimes, combined with the theoretical branching fractions, have allowed us to deduce oscillator strengths for six 5d(9)6s(2)-5d(9)6s6p and 5d(10)6s-5d(9)6s6p transitions of Au I and for sixty-three 5d(9)6s-5d(9)6p, 5d(9)6p-5d(9)7s and 5d(10)-5d(9)6p UV transitions of Au II.

Radiative lifetimes of 11 odd-parity levels of neutral rhenium (Re I) were measured using time-resolved laser-induced fluorescence techniques. For ten levels, there were no previous results available. The new results have been used to assess the accuracy of calculations with a Hartree-Fock-plus-relativistic-corrections model that takes configuration interaction and core-polarization effects into account and they have allowed the deduction of reliable semi-empirical transition probabilities for 81 Re I lines.

Transition probabilities have been derived for 20 5s-5p transitions of Pd I from a combination of radiative lifetime measurements for 6 odd-parity levels with time-resolved laser-induced fluorescence spectroscopy and of branching fraction determination using a hollow cathode discharge lamp. Additional oscillator strengths for 18 transitions have been determined from measured lifetimes and theoretical branching fractions obtained from configuration interaction calculations with core-polarization effects included. These new results have allowed us to refine the palladium abundance in the solar photosphere: A(Pd) = 1.66 +/- 0.04, in the usual logarithmic scale, a result in close agreement with the meteoritic value.

Radiative lifetime measurements have been performed, with a time-resolved laser-induced fluorescence technique, for 12 levels of Os I and for 9 levels of Os II. For 9 levels of Os I and 4 levels of Os II, there were no previous experimental data available. From a comparison with new theoretical calculations, taking configuration interactions and core-polarization effects into account, it has been possible to deduce oscillator strengths for 129 transitions of Os I and 137 transitions of Os II of astrophysical interest appearing in the wavelength range 180.0-870.0 nm. These results have allowed us to revise the abundance of osmium in the solar photosphere (log epsilon(Os) = 1.25 +/- 0.11). The newly derived oscillator strengths have been applied as well to derive the osmium abundance in the carbon-rich metal-poor star HD 187861. [less ▲]

New transition probabilities are deduced for a set of strong lines depopulating the levels investigated experimentally in the present work. [less ▲]

Radiative parameters for transitions depopulating the levels belonging to the 4d(8)5s(2), 4d(9)6s and 4d(9)5d configurations of Ag II have been obtained from a combination of theoretical lifetimes and experimental branching fractions. On the experimental side, a laser-produced plasma was used as a source of Ag+ ions. The light emitted by the plasma was analysed by a grating monochromator coupled with a time-resolved optical multichannel analyser system. Spectral response calibration of the experimental system was performed using a deuterium lamp in the wavelength range from 200 to 400 nm, and a standard tungsten lamp in the range from 350 to 600 nm. The transition probabilities were obtained from measured branching ratios and theoretical radiative lifetimes of the corresponding states calculated with a relativistic Hartree-Fock approach including core-polarization effects and configuration interaction in an extensive way. Theoretical and experimental data have been compared and the new data have also been compared with the few previous results available in the literature. [less ▲]

Radiative lifetimes of 15 Tl I levels belonging to the 6s(2)ns(2)S(1/2) (n = 7-14) and 6s(2)nd(2)D(3/2) Rydberg series (n = 6-12) have been measured using a time-resolved laser-induced fluorescence technique. All the measured levels have been excited from the ground state 6s(2)6p(2)P(1/2)(0) (odd parity) with a single-step excitation process. The general perturbation of the ns series by the 6s6p(2) configuration and the corresponding modification of the lifetimes are adequately reproduced by a theoretical model including core-polarization effects and combined with a least-squares fit to the observed energy levels. The general behaviour of the lifetime values for the 6s(2)np odd levels along the Rydberg series is also well reproduced. The use of the multiconfiguration quantum defect theory has allowed us to obtain lifetime values along the 6s(2)ns(2)S(1/2) series up to levels with n = 31. [less ▲]

We have investigated the radiative decay of the metastable level 5d(4)D(7/2) in Xe+. Theoretically we find the decay to be heavily dominated by an M2 transition and not by M1/E2 transitions. Lifetime measurements of 5d(4)D(7/2) in a storage ring are difficult since magnetic mixing of the metastable with a short-lived level quenches its population. Decay rates were determined at different magnetic field strengths (B) in order to allow a nonlinear extrapolation to B=0. The experimental lifetime of 2.4 +/- 0.8 s was in agreement with the calculated value, but much smaller than previously estimated. [less ▲]
