Relativistic R-matrix calculations for photoionization cross-sections of C IV: implications for photorecombination of C V
In this paper we present photoionization cross-sections of the ground and excited states of Li-like carbon (C IV) in the framework of fully relativistic R-matrix formalism as implemented in Dirac atomic R-matrix code. For target wavefunctions expansion, Multiconfiguration Dirac Hartree Fock calculations are performed for the lowest 17 target states of He-like carbon (C V) arising from 1s2 and 1snl, with n = 2, 3 and l = s, p, d configurations. Our target energy levels and transition parameters belonging to these levels are ascertained to be in excellent agreement with the experimental and the well-established theoretical results. We use the principle of detailed balance to get the photorecombination (PR) cross-sections of the ground state of C V. Both photoionization and PR cross-sections manifest important KLL and KLM resonance structures which are in very good agreement with the accurate measurements at Advanced Light Source (ion photon end beam station) and CRYRING (synchrotron storage ring).
