Systematic Calculations of Energy Levels and Transition Rates of Be-like Ions with Z=10-30 Using a Combined Configuration Interaction and Many-body Perturbation Theory Approach
We report calculations of energy levels and radiative rates for transitions among the lowest 116 fine-structure levels arising from the n≤slant 5 configurations in Be-like ions with Z = 10-30. The wavelengths, oscillator strengths, line strengths, and radiative rates for all possible electric dipole, magnetic dipole, electric quadrupole, and magnetic quadrupole transitions among the 116 levels have been calculated using the combined configuration interaction and many-body perturbation method. The accuracy of the results is determined through extensive comparisons with existing laboratory measurements and theoretical results. The present complete set of results should be of great help in line identification and the interpretation of spectra, as well as in the modeling and diagnostics of astrophysical and fusion plasmas.
