Open Access research with a European policy impact...

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 European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

Abstract

We demonstrate that the inclusion of configuration interaction (CI) results in significant values for the K-shell fluorescence yields of Li-like ions, which are zero in a single-configuration approach. Modeling codes for simulating supernova remnants under nonequilibrium ionization conditions or photoionized plasmas such as active galactic nuclei or X-ray binaries need to be updated accordingly. A two-parameter fitting formula for the fluorescence yields has been developed. The generality of important CI effects on atomic calculations is pointed out.
