Comparison and Analysis of Collisional-Radiative Models at the NLTE-7 Workshop



Yuri Ralchenko, H.-K. Chung, S Hansen, C. Bowen, C. J. Fontes


We present the main results of the 7th Non-Local Thermodynamic Equilibrium Code Comparison Workshop held in December 2011 in Vienna, Austria. More than twenty researchers from nine countries, who actively work on development of collisional-radiative codes for plasma kinetics modeling, attended the meeting and submitted their results for a number of comparison cases. The cases included free-electron-laser-inspired time-dependent relaxation of photoexcited Ne-like Ar, ionization balance and spectra for highly charged tungsten, spectroscopic diagnostics of krypton L-shell spectra, and an investigation of Ne model convergence with principal quantum number.
