Autoionizing 3s3p6np Resonances Along the Argon-Like Sequence

  • Paul van Kampen
Part of the Physics of Atoms and Molecules book series (PAMO)


Photoionization of the 3s-subshell in argon and argon-like ions has been studied extensively in recent years1,2. As a result, considerable insight into the electron correlations dominating the 3s photoabsorption process has been gained from a study of the 3s→np resonances in argon and argon-like ions, complemented by 3s→εp and satellite spectra of argon. This paper presents an overview of these developments.
