Experimental transition probabilities for 4p - 4d spectral lines in V II

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Aims. We aim to measure lifetimes of levels belonging to the 3d 3 ( 4 F)4d subconfiguration in Va II, and derive absolute transition probabilities by combining the lifetimes with experimental branching fractions. Methods. The lifetimes were measured using time-resolved laser-induced fluorescence in a two-photon excitation scheme. The branching fractions were measured in intensity calibrated spectra from a hollow cathode discharge lamp, recorded with a Fourier transform spectrometer. Results. We report lifetimes for 13 levels at an energy around 73 000 cm -1 . Absolute transition probabilities of 78 lines are derived by combining the lifetimes and branching fractions. The experimental values are compared with theoretical data from the literature.
