Experimental recombination rate coefficients of Be-like Frecombining into B-like F
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
Recombination spectra of F VI forming F V have been investigated with high-energy resolution, using the CRYRING heavy-ion storage ring. The absolute recombination rate coefficients are derived in the center-of-mass energy range of 0-25 eV. The experimental results are compared with intermediate coupling AUTOSTRUCTURE calculations for 2s-2p (∆n=0) core excitation and show a very good agreement in the resonance energy positions and intensities. Trielectronic recombination with 2s2-2p2 transitions are clearly identified in the spectrum. Metastable ion contributions are considered and found negligible. The energy dependent recombination spectra are convoluted with Maxwell-Boltzmann energy distribution in the 10-106 K temperature range. The resulting temperature dependent rate coefficients are compared with theoretical results from literature. In the 103-104 K range the calculated data significantly underestimates the plasma recombination rate coefficients. Above ~105 K, our AUTOSTRUCTURE results and plasma rate coefficients from Colgan et al. (2003) show an agreement better than 20% with the experimental results.
