2008 (Swedish)In: Physica scripta. T, ISSN 0281-1847, Vol. 78, no 1, 015301- p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The lifetime of the metastable level 3d2 1G4 in a singly charged scandium has been experimentally investigated at the ion storage ring CRYRING. A laser probing technique has been used for the studies. We also report calculated lifetimes and transition rates for 10 metastable levels in Sc II, including the 3d2 1G4 state, by calculations using configuration interaction wave functions. The lifetime of the 1G4 level is experimentally determined to be τexp=2.64±0.18 s and is in good agreement with the theoretical calculation τth=2.84 s.
