Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

We present results for the electron-impact excitation of F-like ions from Ne+ to Kr27+ using an R-matrix approach where the intermediate-coupling frame transformation method has been used to obtain level-resolved collision strengths. For each calculation, the target has been expanded using 87 terms ( 195 levels) with the following configuration basis: 2s(2) 2p(5), 2s 2p(6), 2s2 2p(4) 3l, 2s 2p(5) 3l and 2s(2) 2p(4) 4l. Comparisons are made with previous R-matrix calculations for the fine-structure transition over the whole sequence and other, more extensive, calculations on Ne+ and Fe17+. We examine iso-electronic trends of both low-and high-temperature effective collision strengths. This complete, self-consistent set of radiative and collision data is archived in multiple databases.
