THE 3d2 - 3d4f TRANSITIONS IN V IV

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The 3d4f levels in the spectrum of triply ionized vanadium, V IV, were located by L. Iglesias. She located these levels by identifying transitions from the 3d{sup 2} ground configuration to the 3d4p levels, then to the 3d4d levels and finally to the 3d4f levels. She also identified the transitions from the 3d4d levels to the 3d5p levels, continued up to the 3d5d levels, then back down to the 3d4f levels. Though the 3d4f levels were well established by two routes, the direct transitions from the ground state were not observed, being beyond her experimental range which stopped at 675 ... continued below

Description

The 3d4f levels in the spectrum of triply ionized vanadium, V IV, were located by L. Iglesias. She located these levels by identifying transitions from the 3d{sup 2} ground configuration to the 3d4p levels, then to the 3d4d levels and finally to the 3d4f levels. She also identified the transitions from the 3d4d levels to the 3d5p levels, continued up to the 3d5d levels, then back down to the 3d4f levels. Though the 3d4f levels were well established by two routes, the direct transitions from the ground state were not observed, being beyond her experimental range which stopped at 675 {angstrom}. We have photographed the spectrum of vanadium in the region of 190-650 {angstrom} and the direct transitions from 3d{sup 2} to 3d4f have been observed. The spectrum was excited with a vacuum sliding-spark discharge between vanadium metal electrodes separated by a quartz spacer as described previously. Peak discharge current was 1000 {angstrom}. The spectrum was photographed on Kodak SWR plates using the 10 {center_dot} 7 m grazing incidence spectrograph at the National Bureau of Standards in Washington, D.C. The plate factor in the region of interest is about 0.27 {angstrom}/mm. The plates were measured on a Grant comparator. Lines of yttrium IV and V, oxygen III and carbon IV were used for reference standards. The same plates were used to obtain the spectrum of vanadium V as reported previously by van Deurzen. Table I contains 19 transitions from the ground configuration, 3d{sup 2}, to the 3d4f configuration and 3 transitions from the ground configuration to the 3dSp configuration. Column 1 in the table is our measured vacuum wavelengths. The intensities in column 2 are visual estimates on a scale of 0 to 9. Column 3 lists the wavenumber of the measured lines. The classifications of the transitions and the odd-even level values are given in columns 4 and 5 and are taken from Iglesias. The difference, {Delta}, between the wavenumber of the observed line and the wavenumber calculated from Iglesias levels are given in column 6. The mean difference of column 6 is 0.6 cm{sup -1}. Since a measured change of 0.001 {angstrom} at 378 {angstrom} corresponds to 0.7 cm{sup -1}, we can say that the wavelengths obtained by the two methods agree to within {+-} 0.001 {angstrom}. The V V wavelength list of van Deurzen shows a gap between 300 and 400 {angstrom}. The addition of our V IV lines fills this gap and provides an extensive list of accurate vanadium wavelengths suitable for reference standards throughout the vacuum wavelength region from 200-2000 {angstrom}.
