The weighted oscillator strengths gf and the lifetimes for S XIV presented in this work have been calculated in a multiconfigurational Hartree–Fock relativistic approach. In this calculation, the electrostatic parameters were optimized by a least-squares procedure in order to improve the adjustment to experimental energy levels. This method produces gf values that are in better agreement with observed line intensities and lifetime values closer to the experimentally determined ones. In this work we presented all the experimentally known electric dipole S XIV spectral lines.
