Today, the electron affinity is experimentally well known for most of the elements and is a useful guideline for developing ab initio computational methods. However, the measurements of isotope shifts on the electron affinity are limited by both resolution and sensitivity. In this context, theory is of great help to further our knowledge and understanding of atomic structures, even though correlation plays a dominant role in negative ions' properties and, particularly, in the calculation of the specific mass shift contribution. This study solves the longstanding discrepancy between calculated and measured specific mass shifts on the electron affinity of chlorine.
