ADC_Keywords: Atomic physics Keywords: atomic data - atomic processes - line: formation Abstract: Extensive calculations have been performed for electron impact excitation collision strengths and oscillator strengths for the Fe VII extreme ultraviolet lines of astrophysical importance. The collision strengths for fine-structure transitions are calculated in the B-spline Breit-Pauli R-matrix approach. The target wavefunctions have been calculated in the multiconfiguration Hartree-Fock method with term-dependent non-orthogonal orbitals. The close-coupling expansion includes 189 fine-structure levels of Fe VII belonging to terms of the ground 3p6 3d2 and excited 3p5 3d3, 3p6 3d4l, 3p6 3d5s, and 3p6 3d5p configurations. The effective collision strengths are determined from the electron excitation collision strengths by integration over a Maxwellian distribution of electron velocities. The effective collision strengths are provided for 17766 fine-structure transitions at electron temperatures from 104 to 107 K. Our results normally agree with the previous R-matrix frame-transformation calculations by Witthoeft & Badnell (2008A&A...481..543W). However, there are important differences for some transitions with the previous calculations. The corrections to the previous results are mainly due to more extensive expansions for the Fe VII target states. Description: We have performed a more elaborate calculation for the electron impact excitation of Fe VII. The fine-structure effects have been included in the close-coupling expansion in the Breit-Pauli approximation. We used term-dependent non-orthogonal orbitals to describe the target states accurately for the collision calculation. The wave functions for different target states were optimized independently. We have reported collision strengths and transition probabilities for all transitions between LSJ levels of the ground 3p6 3d2 and first excited 3p5 3d3, 3p6 3d4l, 3p6 3d5s, and 3p6 3d5p configurations of Fe VII.
