Transition probabilities for allowed and forbidden lines in neutral, singly ionized and doubly ionized tungsten are discussed in the present paper. For the electric dipole transitions, recommended values are proposed from a critical evaluation of the data available in the literature. For the magnetic dipole and electric quadrupole transitions, for which no data have been published so far, a new set of radiative rates has been obtained using a relativistic Hartree–Fock approach including core-polarization effects. The tables summarizing the compiled data are expected to be useful for plasma modelling in fusion reactors. [less ▲]

A new set of theoretical f -values is reported for 178 Ru II transitions of astrophysical interest, involving energy levels below 58 000 cm−1. The theoretical model, including core-polarization effects, has been tested by comparing theoretical lifetimes with new measurements performed by time-resolved laser-induced fluorescence spectroscopy for 23 4d6(5D)5p odd levels of Ru II and by comparing theoretical and experimental Land´e g-factors. The first set of transition probabilities is proposed for 25 strong lines depopulating the 4d55p 5,7P◦ terms of Ru III. The new results will allow quantitative investigations of stellar spectra and allow the astrophysicists to refine the ruthenium abundance in stars. [less ▲]

Land´e g-factors have been measured by time-resolved laser-induced fluorescence and Zeeman quantum-beat techniques for the even-parity levels of the J = 1 5pnp (n = 11–13, 15–19) and J = 2 5pnp (n = 11–13, 15–19, 31, 32), 5pnf (n = 4, 5, 9–19, 22, 23) Rydberg series and for all the 5p7p and 5p8p perturbing levels of neutral tin. A two-colour two-step excitation scheme was used in the experiment. The experimental results have been compared with theoretical g-values obtained by the multichannel quantum defect theory and the relativistic Hartree–Fock theory, respectively. In most cases, the theoretical values agree well with the experimental data. [less ▲]

Radiative lifetimes of six odd-parity levels belonging to the 5d26p configuration of doubly ionized tantalum (Ta III) have been measured using the time-resolved-laser-inducedfluorescence technique. Supporting theoretical calculations, including core-polarization effects, have been performed to model configuration interaction and to estimate branching fractions. The excellent agreement between the theoretical and experimental lifetimes allows us to assess the reliability of the 206 calculated transition probabilities. It is expected that this new set of results will be useful to astrophysicists for the investigation of the chemical composition of stars. [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.

Wavelengths and transition probabilities have been calculated for the n=4, Δn=0 allowed transitions in the heavy Cu-, Zn-, Ga- and Ge-like ions with Z=70–92. Fully relativistic multiconfiguration Dirac-Fock (MCDF) computations were carried out. The present results are compared to and agree well with recent electron-beam ion-trap (EBIT) measurements in Yb, W, Os, Au, Pb, Bi, Th and U ions. [less ▲]

We present a method to numerically compute accurate tunnelling rates for a Bose-Einstein condensate which is described by the nonlinear Gross-Pitaevskii equation. Our method is based on a sophisticated real-time integration of the complex-scaled Gross-Pitaevskii equation, and it is capable of finding the stationary eigenvalues for the Wannier-Stark problem. We show that even weak nonlinearities have significant effects in the vicinity of very sensitive resonant tunnelling peaks, which occur in the rates as a function of the Stark field amplitude. The mean-field interaction induces a broadening and a shift of the peaks, and the latter is explained by an analytic perturbation theory. [less ▲]

A method for gaining information about the phonon-number moments and the generalized nonlinear and linear quadratures in the motion of trapped ions (in particular, position and momentum) is proposed, valid inside and outside the Lamb-Dicke regime. It is based on the measurement of first time derivatives of electronic populations, evaluated at the motion-probe interaction time tau = 0. In contrast to other state-reconstruction proposals, based on measuring Rabi oscillations or dispersive interactions, the present scheme can be performed resonantly at infinitesimal short motion-probe interaction times, remaining thus insensitive to decoherence processes.

We present observations of VUV transitions between doubly excited sextet states in O, IV, F V and Ne VI. Spectra were produced by collisions of an O+, (FH)(+) and Ne+ beam with a thin carbon foil target. Some observed lines are assigned to the 1s2s2p(2)3p L-6-1 s2p(3)3p P-6 electric-dipole transitions in 0 IV, F V and Ne VI, and are compared with the results of multi-configuration Hartree-Fock (with QED and higher-order corrections) and multi-configuration Dirac-Fock calculations. 31 new lines have been identified. The sextet systems of boronlike ions are possible candidates for x-ray and VUV lasers. [less ▲]

In a recent work, Abdel-Aty and Obada (2002 J. Phys. B: At. Mol. Opt. Phys. 35 807-13) analysed the quantum inversion of cold atoms in a microcavity, the motion of the atoms being described quantum mechanically. Two-level atoms were assumed to interact with a single mode of the cavity, and the off-resonance case was considered (namely the atomic transition frequency is detuned from the single-mode cavity frequency). We demonstrate in this paper that this case is incorrectly treated by these authors, and we therefore question their conclusions. [less ▲]

Natural radiative lifetimes of eight levels in Tm III were measured with the time-resolved laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) technique. Free doubly ionized thulium ions were obtained in a laser-produced plasma. Three even-parity levels were excited from the ground state with one-photon excitation, using a laser system generating pulses of 1 ns duration. Five odd-parity levels were excited from the ground state with two-photon excitation, where a picosecond laser system was employed. In both cases, the lifetimes were evaluated from transient LIF signals detected with a fast-detection system. The experimental lifetime results were compared with Hartree–Fock calculations including relativistic corrections. Good agreement was achieved for the 4f126p levels while larger discrepancies are noted for some 4f125d levels. [less ▲]
