Lifetime measurements of even and odd states in neutral terbium (Tb I)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Radiative lifetimes of 7 odd and 11 even parity states of Tb I (Z = 65) have been measured by the time resolved laser induced fluorescence method (TR-LIF). Experimental data for 9 out of the 18 states are obtained for the first time. The radiative lifetimes presented in this study are in good agreement with previous TR-LIF experimental results but systematically shorter than those obtained by the delayed coincidence technique.
