Radiative lifetimes of doubly ionized terbium

Xu, Huailiang LU and Jiang, ZK (2005) In Chinese Physics Letters 22(11). p.2798-2800
Abstract
Radiative lifetimes of two short-lived levels (i.e. 4f(8) (F-7(6))6p(1/2) (6,1/2)(11/2,13/2)) in Tb II are measured by time-resolved laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) technique with a two-step excitation process. Free Tb III ions are produced in a laser-induced plasma. Lifetime values are evaluated with a deconvolution procedure of the time-resolved fluorescence signal with the temporal shape of second-step excitation pulse (about 1 ns). The lifetimes of the 4f(8) (F-7(6))6p(1/2) (6,1/2)(11/2) and 4f(8) (F-7(6))6p(1/2) (6, 1/2)(13/2) levels are determined to be 1.9 (2) and 2.0 (2) ns, respectively.
