In the present work, we report on experimental and theoretical determination of the decay rates from the 7s(1)/2 state in singly ionized lead. Lifetime measurements performed using time-resolved laser-induced fluorescence spectroscopy and lifetime computations carried out with themulticonfiguration Dirac-Fock method allow us to solve the discrepancies previously observed between theory and experiment for this level. New transition probabilities are proposed for the two depopulation channels, i. e. the 6p(1/2-7s1/2) and 6p(3/2-7s1/2) transitions of astrophysical interest in Pb II and Bi III, respectively.

Transition probabilities of 41 transitions originating from the 3d(9)4d and 3d(8)4s(2) electronic configurations of singly ionized copper have been determined using laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy. The Cu II ions have been produced by laser ablation. The experimental relative transition probabilities have been converted into an absolute scale using measured branching fractions and theoretical radiative lifetimes of the corresponding upper states obtained by a relativistic Hartree-Fock method taking core-polarization and configuration interaction effects into account. Comparison of the new results with previously available data is also presented. [less ▲]

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 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 ▲]

A detailed investigation of radiative parameters for electric dipole (El) transitions is presented for the ions Ra II, Ac 111, Th IV and U VI along the francium isoelectronic sequence. The pseudo-relativistic Hartree-Fock (BFR) method including core-polarization effects is used for the calculations. Comparisons with multiconfigurational Dirac-Fock (MCDF) calculations show that the most important relativistic effects are taken into account. In view of their importance in nuclear laser spectroscopy, forbidden rates (transitions M1 and E2) in Th IV are also reported in this paper. [less ▲]

Radiative lifetime measurements have been performed, with a time-resolved laser-induced fluorescence technique, for 18 even-parity levels of Pr I and 15 odd-parity levels of Nd I. The new results are compared with the few experimental data available in the literature and good agreement is found. However, fragmentary knowledge of the spectra prevents reliable calculation of branching fractions and calls for additional laboratory efforts in order to provide the astrophysicists with reliable transition probabilities needed for investigating the magnetic fields in chemically peculiar stars.

Radiative lifetime measurements were performed with time-resolved laser-induced fluorescence techniques for 47 levels of the astrophysically important ion Sm1+ over the energy range 21000-36 000 cm(-1). The new results have been compared with previous measurements but also with theoretical calculations taking configuration interactions and core-polarization effects into account, and a satisfying agreement has been found for many levels of this complex ion. New calculated transition probabilities are deduced from the experimental lifetimes and from the theoretical branching fractions for 162 transitions of astrophysical interest. These results will help astrophysicists in the quantitative investigation of the chemical composition of CP stars. [less ▲]

Radiative lifetimes of 30 excited states of Er 11, ranging in energy from 25 592 to 36 148 cm(-1), have been measured by means of a time-resolved laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) technique. Free, singly ionized erbium ions were produced in a laser-induced plasma. A tunable laser, with 1 ns duration pulse, was employed to selectively excite the Er+ ions. The lifetime values were evaluated from the transient LIF signals recorded by a fast detection system. A comparison of the new results with previously published values is given. HFR calculations, including core-polarization contributions, are found to be in reasonable agreement with experiment, but the present calculations clearly indicate that further laboratory and theoretical work is urgently needed, particularly for the low lying odd configurations of this complex ion.

For 6S(2)(S-1)8p and 6s(2)(S-1)7f, the experimental lifetimes corresponding to the two J values within the doublet differ substantially. Comparison with theoretical values, calculated with extensive configuration interaction and core-polarization effects included, shows that the experimental trends are adequately reproduced both for np (n = 8-9) and nf (n = 5-8) states.

Free Yb+ ions were produced in a laser-induced plasma. The experimental results have been compared with HFR calculations, taking core-polarization effects into account, and a good agreement (within 25%) between theory and experiment is observed for four levels.

The wavelengths of the 1snp P-1(1)0-1s(2) S-1(0) transitions in the He-like Mg XI (n = 4-9) and F VIII (n = 4-8) have been measured in laser-produced plasmas. The accuracy of the present measurements (0.4-1.6 mAngstrom) is a large improvement over previous results. The Rydberg series is used to determine the ground-state ionization energy of F VIII and Mg XI: E-ion (F VIII) = 953.96 +/- 0.11 eV, E-ion (Mg XI) = 1761.88 +/- 0.15 eV. These experimental results are compared with theoretical data calculated by the 1/Z-expansion method and the HFR and MCDF approaches. Fairly good agreement between theory and experiment is observed with a precision up to 5 x 10(-5). Radiative corrections to the 1s(2) S-1(0) state are analysed and compared with experiments. It is found that QED corrections to the ground-state ionization energy are significant at the present level of experimental accuracy. [less ▲]

The rates of several electric-dipole forbidden decays of 3p and 3d levels in Cl-, S-, P- and Si-like ions of Fe have been measured optically at a heavy-ion storage ring. In several cases, more than one decay contributes to a given decay curve, which complicates the analysis. The lifetime results, with a precision range from 0.6 to 20%, compare well with some theoretical predictions, but are more precise. They are also more precise than some experimental data from an electrostatic ion trap. [less ▲]
