Summary

The spectroscopy of highly charged ions plays a key role in numerous areas of physics, from quantum electrodynamics (QED) and parity nonconservation (PNC) testing to fusion and plasma physics to x-ray astronomy. Handbook for Highly Charged Ion Spectroscopic Research brings together many of the techniques and ideas needed to carry out state-of-the-art research in this field.

The first part of the book presents techniques of light/ion sources, spectrometers, and detectors. It also covers coincidence techniques and examines how atomic properties change along an isoelectronic sequence. The second part focuses on atomic structure and applications. In addition, it discusses theoretical ideas, such as QED and PNC, that are significant in precise spectroscopic studies of highly charged ions. Extensive references are included at the end of each chapter.

With the latest developments in fusion and x-ray astronomy research relying heavily on high-quality atomic data, the need for precise, up-to-date spectroscopic techniques is as vital now as it has ever been. This timely handbook explores how these spectroscopic methods for highly charged ions are used in various areas of physics.
