|Title:||Measurement of the D Line Doublet in High-Z Highly-Charged Sodium-like Ions|
|Published:||July 08, 2009|
|Abstract:||We report a direct observation of the D line doublet of sodium-like ions with Z≥72. Spectra in the 1 nm to 9 nm spectral range are presented showing the widely split doublet for Hf61+, Ta62+, W63+,and Au68+. The ions were produced and confined in an electron beam ion trap and observed with a flat-field grazing incidence spectrometer. The measured wavelengths agree well with predictions that take into account the effects of relativistic correlation and quantum electrodynamics. We also report the measured wavelengths for several transitions in Si-like, Al-like, and Mg-like ions.|
