Abstract

Here we report measured and calculated values of decay rates of the 3d$^4$($^5$D)4s4p($^3$P$^\rmo}}$)\ y$^7$P$^\rmo}}_2,3,4}$ states of Cr I. The decay rates are measured using time-correlated single photon counting with roughly 1\,\% total uncertainty. In addition, the isotope shifts for these transitions are measured by laser induced fluorescence to roughly 0.5\,\% uncertainty. The decay rate calculations are carried out by a hybrid approach that combines configuration interaction and the linearized coupled cluster method (CI+all-order method). The measurements provide a much needed precision benchmark for testing the accuracy of the CI+all-order approach for such complicated systems with six valence electrons, allowing to significantly expand its applicability. These measurements also demonstrate operation of a cryogenic buffer gas beam source for future experiments with MgF molecules toward quantum blackbody thermometry.
