Title: Autoionizing resonances in electron-impact excitation of oxygenlike selenium

Abstract

We have investigated the contributions of doubly excited, autoionizing resonances to the rate coefficients for electron-impact excitation of the n = 2 to n = 2 transitions in oxygenlike selenium. The cross sections for direct excitation were calculated using a relativistic distorted-wave approximation. The detailed Auger and radiative rates required for evaluating the resonance contributions were calculated using a multiconfigurational Dirac-Fock model. The largest effect is on the electric-dipole-forbidden transitions. For some J = 0 to J = 0 transitions involving two-electron excitations, the resonances enhance the collisional excitation rates by factors up to 10/sup 4/ at electron temperatures relevant for laboratory plasmas.
