We have performed lifetime measurements in the sequences of2S1/2 and2D3/2 states for the alkali-like 4d10 ns,nd configurations of neutral silver. Selective stepwise excitations from the 4d10 5s2S1/2 ground state were performed using two pulsed dye lasers. Optical transients were recorded and evaluated with regard to the decay time. The lifetime results are compared with those of a theoretical study in which a model potential has been used to describe the polarisation of the 4d shell.
