Quantum Electrodynamic and nuclear effects in Li-like ions and muonic atoms

Abstract : We have performed multi-configuration Dirac-Fock calculations of the transition energies in the transitions of 1s²2p²PJ-1s²2s²S1/2, J=1/2, 3/2, core-excited transitions of 1s2s2p²PJ-1s²2s²S1/2, J=1/2, 3/2 and 1s2s2p4PJ-1s²2s²S1/2, J=1/2, 3/2, 5/2, and Auger transition energies of 1s2s2p2PJ-1s2 1S0 and 1s2s2p4PJ- 1s2 1S0, J=1/2,3/2 in the lithium isoelectronic sequence for low- to high-Z ions (Z=10-96). Quantum-electrodynamic corrections with effective operator model and electronic correlation corrections are included in Dirac wave functions with finite nuclear size. All-order Breit and vacuum polarization corrections are also included in the calculation, with a fully optimized active set wavefunction. Extensive comparisons between existing theorical results and experiment are performed. We also evaluate nuclear parameters that minimize the weighted theory-experiment discrepancy in muonic 208Pb with two-parameter Fermi and three-parameter Gauss models. We obtain r=5.5057 fm in the Fermi model and r=5.5031 in Gauss model by polynomial-fitting. We also analyze the individual contributions of muonic 226Ra and 248Cm using the same prescription of exact QED correction for the upcoming experiments.
