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.

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 ▲]

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.
