Additions to the spectrum and energy levels and a critical compilation of helium-like and hydrogen-like boron, BIV and BV

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Using beam-foil spectroscopy, we have observed several new lines in the B IV and B V spectra. This experimental work was combined with theoretical calculations using ab initio and semi-empirical techniques. We have also critically evaluated all previous and recent experimental and theoretical data for these spectra. Complete data on wavelengths and energy levels based on this analysis are tabulated.
