Radiative rates of transitions from the 2s2p3 5S°2 state in neutral carbon

Abstract

The measured radiative rates of the 2s22p2 3P1,2 – 2s2p3 5S°2 intercombination transitions in neutral carbon reported in the literature are critically evaluated in comparison with theoretical results. The experimental and theoretical values are compared for the carbon isoelectronic sequence from neutral carbon to nine-times ionized phosphorous. We find that all published measurements for this transition in C I contain large errors and should be disregarded, while the validity of currently recommended theoretical data is confirmed.
