Measurement of radiative lifetimes and determination of transition probabilities of astrophysical interest in HoIII
Publikation/Tidskrift/Serie: Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society
Lifetimes of six levels belonging to the 4f(10)6p configuration of Ho III have been measured for the first time using the time-resolved laser-induced fluorescence method. They are compared with multiconfigurational pseudo-relativistic Hartree-Fock calculations. A very good agreement is found. Using the experimental lifetimes and theoretical branching fractions, a first set of transition probabilities of astrophysical interest has been obtained for this ion.
