Transition rates of electrons in superheavy elements

  • Gerhard Soff
  • Berndt Müller


Transition rates for electrons in the superheavy elementsZ=114, 126, 134, 145, 164 and 173 are calculated.K, L andM-shells are considered as final states. The 2s-1s transition of multipolarityM 1 is dominant for Z = 173 with a transition time of 10−18 s. The radical expectation values 〈r〉 and 〈r21/2 are given.
