Visible light spectroscopy of Ar6+ ions in high Rydberg states produced with a microcapillary target

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We have observed photons in the visible light range emitted from slow (2.0 keV/amu) highly charged Ar6+ ions which have captured one electron and transmitted through a Ni microcapillary target. Observed lines were identified by comparing with an ab initio calculation based on the multi-configuration Hartree-Fock method. (C) 2003 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
