Abstract

Excitation energies and oscillator strengths for electric dipole transitions between low-lying states in the silver isoelectronic sequence are studied using relativistic Hartree-Fock wave functions. For Z ≥ 61, our calculation shows that the ground state of Ag-like ions is 4f 2F5/2 rather than 5s 2S1/2. We found a diminishing role of the spin-orbit effect on transitions between levels with high angular momenta. Effects of anticrossings between 4d9 4f2 and 4d 10 5l (l = 0,2,4) states at high Z are discussed.
