Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

Abstract

Using the five-electron K-shell vacancy 1s2s(2)2p(2) configuration as an example, we show that the fluorescence yields of the eight LSJ states of the configuration exhibit a dramatic dependence on LSJ. These results demonstrate that, in general, configuration-average fluorescence data are inappropriate for astrophysical modeling.
