Abstract

54 spectral lines of singly ionized praseodymium (141Pr+) have been investigated using the high resolution spectroscopic method of collinear laser ion beam spectroscopy (CLIBS). Magnetic dipole interaction constants A and electric quadrupole interaction constants B of 49 involved levels could be determined. 19 levels are investigated for the first time using this technique. The A-values could be determined with uncertainties less than 1 MHz.
