Title: Relativistic distorted-wave collision strengths for the 49 Δn=0 optically allowed transitions with n=2 in the 67 B-like ions with 26≤Z≤92

Relativistic distorted-wave collision strengths have been calculated for the 49 Δn=0 optically allowed transitions with n=2 in the 67 B-like ions with nuclear charge number Z in the range 26≤Z≤92. The calculations were made for the four final, or scattered, electron energies E{sup ′}=0.20, 0.42, 0.80, and 1.40, where E{sup ′} is in units of Z{sub eff}{sup 2} Ry with Z{sub eff}=Z−3.33. In the present calculations, an improved “top-up” method, which employs relativistic plane waves, was used to obtain the high partial-wave contribution for each transition, in contrast to the partial-relativistic Coulomb–Bethe approximation used in previous work by Zhang and Sampson [H.L. Zhang and D.H. Sampson, At. Data Nucl. Data Tables 56 (1994) 41]. In that earlier work, collision strengths were also provided for B-like ions, but for a more comprehensive data set consisting of all 105 Δn=0 transitions, six scattered energies and the 85 ions with Z in the range 8≤Z≤92. The collision strengths covered in the present work should be more accurate than the corresponding data given by Zhang and Sampson [H.L. Zhang and D.H. Sampson, At. Data Nucl. Data Tables 56 (1994) 41] and are presented here to replace those earlier results.
