MQDT/RMatrix Floquet Method For Dielectronic Recombination
Abstract
This work presents results from an Rmatrix Floquet calculation which has been used to study radiative damping effect in dielectronic recombination process in a region for which the radiative transition probability exceeds the separation between resonances in a Rydberg series, where one can have overlapping resonances and the interference terms are expected, i.e. a perturbative description fails. The occurrence of the laserinduced degenerate states phenomenon involving autoionizing states has been observed and understood by constructing model taking full account of the electron collision and radiative processes in a consistent way, when radiation field is considered to all orders. The method is applied for dielectronic recombination of Lilike into Belike systems as an example.

We apply a recently formulated closecoupling technique [Robicheaux {ital et} {ital al}., Phys. Rev. A {bold 52}, 1319 (1995)], which includes radiation damping via an optical potential, to the calculation of dielectronic recombination cross sections of Ar{sup 15+}. Specifically, we compare the results from both WignerEisenbud and eigenchannel {ital R}matrix calculations to perturbative methods. For this system, no evidence for interfering resonance phenomena is found, and excellent agreement is obtained among all methods. This indicates that the present closecoupling treatment of the dielectronic recombination is highly accurate and can therefore be used to investigate systems where lowerorder perturbative methods aremore »

Variation of satellite intensity factors with n for 1 s sup 2. epsilon. l r arrow 1 s 2 pnl r arrow 1 s sup 2 nl dielectronicrecombination processes in heliumlike ions
Satellite intensity factors {ital F}{sub 2}{sup *}({ital s}{minus}{ital f}) have been calculated for the 1{ital s}{sup 2}{epsilon}{ital l}{r arrow}1{ital s}2{ital pnl}{r arrow}1{ital s}{sup 2}{ital nl} dielectronicrecombination processes of heliumlike Ne, Si, Ar, Ti, Cr, and Ni. The relevant atomic parameters have been calculated explicitly for all intermediate resonance states {vert bar}{ital s}{r angle}={vert bar}1{ital s}2{ital pnlSLJ}{r angle} with {ital n}=28 and {ital l}=06 in the intermediatecoupling scheme. The 1/{ital n}{sup 3} scaling, which has often been used in extrapolating {ital F}{sub 2}{sup *}({ital s}{minus}{ital f}) for {ital n}{ge}4, is tested against these values of {ital F}{sub 2}{sup *}({ital s}{minus}{ital f}). 
Dielectronic satellite spectra of heliumlike iron and nickel from the unified recombination method
It is shown that resonances in the unified recombination cross sections correspond directly to dielectronic satellite spectra. Positions, intensities, and profiles of satellite lines may be obtained accurately using the BreitPauli Rmatrix method and the unified theory of total electronion recombination. The intrinsic dielectronic resonance strength corresponding to autoionizing resonances is defined in analogy with measured quantities, and with resonance oscillator strengths. Satellite intensities then depend extrinsically on dynamical parameters in the plasma and may be obtained at any temperature in a straightforward manner from the resonance strengths. Profiles of dielectronic satellite lines of Helike Fe XXV and Ni XXVIImore » 
Leaky ion extraction method for dielectronic recombination strength measurements at electronbeam ion traps
There are a number of mechanisms via which ions and electrons interact in a plasma, but by far one of the most important is through dielectronic recombination (DR). This is a resonant process through which an ion can capture a free electron and decrease its charge by one unit. Cross sections or strengths for this process are of vital importance in the modeling of hot plasmas and hence any advance in measurement or calculation procedures for obtaining DR data is of great importance. The work presented here examines the underlying basis of a newly developed method based on leaky modemore » 
Excitation energies, radiative and autoionization rates, dielectronic satellite lines, and dielectronic recombination rates to excited states for Blike oxygen
Energy levels, radiative transition probabilities, and autoionization rates for Blike oxygen (O{sup 3+}) including 1s{sup 2}2s{sup 2} nl, 1s{sup 2}2s2pnl, and 1s{sup 2}2p{sup 2} nl (n = 28, l n  1) states are calculated using the multiconfiguration interaction Cowan code and a relativistic manybody perturbation theory method (RMBPT) code. Autoionizing levels above three thresholds (1s{sup 2}2s{sup 2} {sup 1}S, 1s{sup 2}2s2p {sup 3}P, and 1s{sup 2}2s2p {sup 1}P) are considered. Configuration mixing (2s{sup 2} nl + 2p{sup 2} nl) plays an important part in all of the atomic properties considered. Branching ratios relative to the first threshold and themore »
