Lifetimes of 2p53p and 3d levels in Ne-like chlorine, Cl VIII

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Experimental lifetimes of seven 2p53p and six 2p53d levels in Ne-like chlorine, Cl VIII, have been measured using the beam-foil technique. For the first time in the Ne-sequence, the ANDC method of cascade correction has been applied in the lifetime determination of the 3p levels. This procedure lowered the values by 10 to 30% compared to the results from multiexponential curve-fitting. For all levels studied, except 3p3D2 and 3D1, the experimental lifetimes are in good agreement with recent theoretical values. A comparison between experimental and theoretical lifetimes for some 3p and 3d levels along the isoelectronic sequence is presented.
