Title: Single-photon photoionization of oxygen-like Ne III

Abstract

Here, we offer a theoretical and experimental study of the single-photon photoionization of Ne III. The high photon flux and the high-resolution capabilities of the Advanced Light Source at the LBNL were employed to measure absolute photoionization cross sections. The resulting spectrum has been benchmarked against high accuracy relativistic Breit-Pauli R-matrix calculations. Additionally, a large close-coupling wave function expansion which comprises up to 58 fine-structure levels of the residual ion Ne IV of configurations 2s22p3, 2s2p4, 2p5, 2s22p23s, 2s22p23p and 2s22p23d was included. A complete identification of the measured features was achieved by considering seven low-lying levels of Ne III. We found that the photoionization cross-section (σPI) exhibits the presence of prominent resonances in the lowenergy region near the ionization thresholds that correspond to low-lying levels. These include highpeak narrow resonances with almost zero background introduced by relativistic effects. However, there does not exist a significant contribution to σPI from relativistic effects at the high-energy interval of the present study.
