Title: Some Improved Transition Probabilities for Neutral Carbon
Published: April 01, 2006
Abstract: An earlier paper ( Zatsarinny O and Froese Fischer C 2002 J.Phys. B: 35 4669) presented oscillator strengths for transitions from the 2p23P multiplet to high-lying excited states of carbon. The emphasis was on theaccurate prediction of energy levels relative to the ionization limit and allowedtransition data from the ground state. This paper reports some refined transitionprobability calculations for transitions from 2p2 3P, 1D, and 1S to all odd levelsup to 2p3d 3Po. Particular attention is given to intercombination lines whererelativistic effects are most important.
