Effective collision strengths for fine-structure transitions in Si VII. Sossah A.M., Tayal S.S. <Astrophys. J., 787, 2 (2014)> =2014ApJ...787....2S (SIMBAD/NED BibCode)
ADC_Keywords: Atomic physics Keywords: atomic data - atomic processes Abstract: The effective collision strengths for electron-impact excitation of fine-structure transitions in Si VII are calculated as a function of electron temperature in the range 5000-2000000 K. The B-spline Breit-Pauli R-matrix method has been used to calculate collision strengths by electron impact. The target wave functions have been obtained using the multi-configuration Hartree-Fock method with term-dependent non-orthogonal orbitals. The 92 fine-structure levels belonging to the 46 LS states of 2s22p4, 2s2p5, 2p6, 2s22p33s, 2s22p33p, 2s22p33d, and 2s2p43s configurations are included in our calculations of oscillator strengths and collision strengths. There are 4186 possible fine-structure allowed and forbidden transitions among the 92 levels. The present excitation energies, oscillator strengths, and collision strengths have been compared with previous theoretical results and available experimental data. Generally, a good agreement is found with the 6 LS-state close-coupling approximation results of Butler & Zeippen (1994, J/A+AS/108/1) and the 44 LS-state distorted wave calculation of Bhatia & Landi (2003ApJ...585..587B). Description: The purpose of present work is to calculate more accurate data for Si VII by using highly accurate target descriptions and by including a sufficient number of target states in the close-coupling expansion. We also included fine-structure effects in the close-coupling expansions to account for the relativistic effects. We used the B-spline Breit-Pauli R-matrix (BSR) codes (Zatsarinny 2006CoPhC.174..273Z) in our scattering calculations. The present method utilizes the term-dependent non-orthogonal orbital sets for the description of the target wave functions and scattering functions. The collisional and radiative parameters have been calculated for all forbidden and allowed transitions between the lowest 92 LSJ levels of 2s22p4, 2s2p5, 2p6, 2s22p33s, 2s22p33p, 2s22p33d, and 2s2p43s configurations of Si VII.
