Fine Structure Calculations of Atomic Data for Ar XVI
Author(s) A. I. Refaie*
Fine structure energy levels, wavelengths, log gf and allowed transition probabilities (E1) have been calculated for Lithium-like Ar XVI. The optimized electrostatic parameters by a least square approach, have been used in the calculation to include the configuration interaction and relativistic effects. A total number of 69 Ar XVI levels having total angular momenta, 1/2 ≤ J ≤ 9/2 of even and odd parities, orbital angular momenta 2 ≤ l ≤ 4, with 546 E1 transitions for 6 ≤ n ≤ 10 are considered using the relativistic effect in the Breit-Pauli method, where n is the principal quantum number. A comparison is made with the available results in literature.
