Abstract
Natural radiative lifetimes of 25 even-parity levels in Gd i (4f(7) 5d(2) 6p, 4f(7)5d6s6p and 4f(8)5d6s configurations) and 13 even-parity levels in Gd it (4f(7)5d6p and 4f(7)6s6p configurations) have been measured using the time-resolved laser-induced fluorescence technique in a laser-induced gadolinium plasma. The Gd I and Gd it levels range in energy from 26 866 to 36 395 cm(-1), and 25 960 to 42 746 cm(-1), respectively. In the measurements, stimulated Brillouin scattering techniques were employed to produce I ns laser pulses to enable accurate measurements of short-lived states. The uncertainty of the radiative lifetimes is, with a few exceptions. about +/-5%.
