Title: Energy levels of neutral and singly ionized berkelium, /sup 249/Bk I and II

Abstract

Energy-level analyses of the observed emission spectrum of berkelium have yielded 179 odd and 186 even levels of neutral berkelium Bk I, and 42 odd and 117 even levels of singly ionized berkelium Bk II. The levels are tabulated with the J value, the g value, the configuration and hyperfine constants A and B, and the width given for many of the levels. The ground states of Bk I and Bk II are (Rn)5f/sup 9/7s/sup 2/ /sup 6/H/sup 0//sub 15/2/ and (Rn)5f/sup 9/7s /sup 7/H/sup 0//sub 8/, respectively. A table lists the lowest level of each identified electronic configuration of Bk I and Bk II.

  • Radiative lifetimes of levels of atoms and singly charged ions of rare earth elements (La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Sm, Eu, Gd, Tb, Dy, Ho, Er, Tm, Yb, Lu) are compiled and analyzed. These data were derived by various experimental and theoretical methods. The data on radiative lifetimes of high-lying levels belonging to several Rydberg series are included. The data are presented as available in the literature up to 1992. 105 refs., 4 figs., 28 tabs.
  • The experimental determined energy levels of Cs II have been revised and extended based entirely on recent observations of the spectrum. Most observed lines have been classified as transitions between 118 even and 167 odd energy levels. Of these 285 levels, 233 have not been previously reported. All the levels have been assigned designations in the jK coupling notation based on theoretical interpretation of the structure and empirical factors. Hyperfine splitting constants are given for 167 levels. By fitting polarization and extended Ritz formulas to selected Rydberg series, the Cs II ionization energy has been determined to be 186 777.4(5)more » cm/sup -1/.« less
  • The authors have assembled a complete list of the most accurately measured wavelengths for all classified lines of O[sub 11]. The data are based mainly on recent extensions of the observations and analysis of this spectrum carried out at the Univ. of Lund, Sweden. The authors derived new optimal values for the energy levels using a computer code and the observed wavelengths for all classified lines. Relevant astrophysical wavelength measurements, appropriately weighted, were included in the level-optimization calculation. The tabulated data include about 1000 observed lines (376-11 663 [angstrom]) classified as transitions between 125 odd-parity and 133 even-parity levels. Inmore » addition to the observed wavelength values, wavelengths calculated from wavenumber differences of the levels are given for all observed lines and for more than 200 predicted lines that have not yet been observed. The calculated wavelengths are generally more accurate than the observed values, the most accurate calculated values (uncertainties 0.0005 to 0.0020 [angstrom]) being in some cases more accurate than the observed wavelengths by up to an order of magnitude. Vacuum wavelengths are given for all lines, and wavelengths in air are also included for the region above 2000 [angstrom]. 24 refs., 2 tabs.« less
