Radiative lifetimes of 17 excited levels in Zr I, in the energy interval 29 000–40 974 cm−1, have been investigated using the time-resolved laser-induced fluorescence method. The levels belong to the 4d25s5p, 4d35p and 4d5s25p electronic configurations and were excited in a single-step process from either the ground term, 4d25s2 a 3F, or from the low-lying 4d25s2 a 3P and a 5F terms. For three levels, we confirm previous measurements while for 14 of the levels the lifetimes have been measured for the first time. The experimental results are compared to theoretical calculations performed with a multiconfiguration relativistic Hartree–Fock method including core-polarization effects. Theoretical transition probabilities of astrophysical interest, scaled by the experimental lifetimes, for the depopulating channels of the investigated levels are also presented. [less ▲]

Radiative lifetimes of nine odd levels in Hf III (5d6p z3P0,1, z1D2, z3D1,2,3, z3F2,3,4) and of two odd levels in Hf I (5d6s26p z3D2,3) have been determined using Time-Resolved Laser-Induced Fluorescence. The investigated levels in Hf I were excited in a single-step process from the ground term (5d26s2 a3F), whereas in Hf III we started from either the ground term 5d2 a3F or the low-lying 5d6s a3D term. For all of the investigated levels, the lifetimes have been measured for the first time. A multiconfiguration relativistic Hartree–Fock method, including core-polarization effects, has been used to compute radiative lifetimes of 15 Hf III levels, including those measured in this work. Transition probabilities for 55 transitions in Hf III are also given. [less ▲]

This paper presents new theoretical lifetimes of metastable levels in singly ionized titanium, Ti II. Along with the lifetimes, transition probabilities for several decay channels from these metastable levels are presented. The calculations are supported by experimental lifetime determinations of the 3d3 b 2D5/2 and 3d2(3P)4s b 2P3/2 levels along with revised values of the previously published lifetimes of the 3d2(3P)4s b 4P5/2 and 3d2(3P)4s b 2P1/2 levels originating partly from a reanalysis utilizing a recently developed method applied on the previously recorded data and partly from new measurements. The presented theoretical investigation of lifetimes of metastable levels in Ti II shows that the HFR calculations are in general compatible with measurements performed using the ion storage ring CRYRING of Stockholm University. The transition probabilities of forbidden lines derived from the new lifetime values will be useful for the diagnostics of low density laboratory or astrophysical plasmas, particularly those encountered in the strontium filament found in the ejecta of η Carinae.

Absolute transition probabilities have been measured for lines originating from the 5d(9)6d and 5d(9)7s electronic configurations in the spectrum of singly ionized gold (Au II). The laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy has been applied to free gold atoms and ions produced by laser ablation. Absolute transition probabilities have been determined using the branching fraction and the Boltzmann plot methods. Theoretical branching fractions as well as radiative lifetime values have also been obtained by a relativistic Hartree-Fock method taking core polarization and configuration interaction effects into account. The new results are compared with previous results when available. [less ▲]

The two metastable levels 5d(2)D(3/2) and 5d(2) D-5/2 in Ba II both show extremely long lifetimes of the order of several tens of seconds each. This has been found both by experiments and by theoretical predictions. The small transition probabilities associated with these two levels make them interesting and challenging for theoreticians as well as for experimentalists. Several calculations and measurements of these two lifetimes have been made previously but discrepancies between the results are present. This article presents values of ??? = 89.4 +/- 15.6 s for the D-2(3/2) level and ??? = 32.0 +/- 4.6 s for the D-2(5/2) level measured in a beam-laser experiment performed at the ion storage ring CRYRING. These values are supported by our new calculations resulting in ???= 82.0 s for the D-2(3/2) level and ???= 31.6 s for the D-2(5/2) level. [less ▲]

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.

Radiative lifetimes of 16 odd levels belonging to the 4d(2)5p configuration of Zr II have been measured using a time-resolved laser-induced fluorescence technique with a single-step excitation process either from the ground state or from metastable levels belonging to the 4d(2)5s and 4d(3) configurations. For 12 levels, there were no previous results available. The new experimental results and the lifetime values available in the literature have allowed to test a theoretical relativistic Hartree-Fock (HFR) model including core-polarization effects and to deduce transition probabilities for 242 transitions of astrophysical interest in the range 187.8-535.0 nm.

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 parameters for transitions depopulating the levels belonging to the 3d84s2 configuration of Cu(II) and 4d96s and 4d95d configurations of Ag(II) have been obtained both theoretically and experimentally. On the experimental side, a laser-produced plasma was used as a source of Cu(II) and Ag(II) spectra. The light emitted by the plasma was focused on the input slit of a grating monochromator coupled with a time-resolved optical multichannel analyzer system. Spectral response calibration of the experimental system was made using a deuterium lamp in the wavelength range extending from 200 to 400 nm, and a standard tungsten lamp in the range from 350 to 600 nm. The transition probabilities were obtained using measured branching fractions and available radiative lifetimes of the corresponding states. On the theoretical side, a relativistic Hartree-Fock (HFR) approach, including core-polarization effects, has been used for the calculations.
