Precision Spectroscopy of Trapped Highly Charged Heavy Elements: Pushing the Limits of Theory and Experiment

Published

Abstract

Atomic Spectroscopy Results from the NIST EBIT facility since the last Symposium on Atomic Spectra and Oscillator Strengths are briefly reviewed. With the exception of the helium isoelectronic sequence, results generally agree with the predictions of theory and with other measurements. As a first step in trying to reconcile various measurements on the helium sequence, the magnitude of neglected satellite line shifts due the double charge exchange is estimated and shown to be potentially significant in the experiments with the smallest reported error bars.
