Title: K-shell X-ray transition energies of multi-electron ions of silicon and sulfur

Abstract

Prompted by the detection of K-shell absorption or emission features in the spectra of plasma surrounding high mass X-ray binaries and black holes, recent measurements using the Livermore electron beam ion trap have focused on the energies of the n = 2 to n = 1 K-shell transitions in the L-shell ions of lithiumlike through fluorinelike silicon and sulfur. In parallel, we have made calculations of these transitions using the Flexible Atomic Code and the multi-reference Møller-Plesset (MRMP) atomic physics code. Using this code we have attempted to produce sets of theoretical atomic data with spectroscopic accuracy for all the L-shell ions of silicon and sulfur. Here, we present results of our calculations for oxygenlike and fluorinelike silicon and compare them to the recent electron beam ion trap measurements as well as previous calculations.
