Abstract

Values of the ionization energies of the singly ionized rare earths have been obtained by means of a semiempirical calculation. The results in eV are:

La ii11.06Sm ii11.07Ho ii11.80
Ce ii10.85Eu ii11.25Er ii11.93
Pr ii10.55Gd ii12.1Tm ii12.05
Nd ii10.73Tb ii11.52Yb ii12.17
Pm ii10.90Dy ii11.67Lu ii13.9

The uncertainty is estimated to be ±0.08 eV except for Gd ii and Lu ii where the estimated uncertainty is ±0.4 eV.
