Absolute Transition Rates for Transitions From 5p Levels in Kr II



Krzysztof Dzierzega, Ulf Griesmann, Gillian Nave, L Bratasz


Branching ratios were measured for 155 electric dipole transitions from 5p and 5p1 levels of singly ionized Kr between 200 nm and 2400 nm. Of these, 83 were measured for the first time. Absolute transition rates for prominent lines, with uncertainties as low as 3% (one standard deviation), were determined with published mean lifetime data for the upper levels. The small uncertainties of our data resolve the discrepancies that were found between several previous measurements
