The atomic structure and the properties of ununbium (Z = 112) and Mercury (Z = 80)
A super heavy element Uub (Z = 112) has been studied theoretically in conjunction with relativistic effects and the effects of electron correlations. The atomic structure and the oscillator strengths of low-lying levels have been calculated, and the ground states have also been determined for the singly and doubly charged ions. The influence of relativity and correlation effects to the atomic properties of such a super heavy element has been investigated in detail. The results have been compared with the properties of an element Hg. Two energy levels at wave numbers 64470 and 94392 are suggested to be of good candidates for experimental observations.
