English abstract
We report theoretical results for magnetic-field-induced 2p53s 3P0,2 − 2p6 1S0 E1 transitions in Ne-like ions with zero nuclear spin (I = 0) between Mg III and Zn XXI as well as in Ne I.We demonstrate that it is important to include both “perturber” states 2p53s 1P1 and 2p53s 3P1 in order to produce reliable transition rates. Furthermore, we investigate the trends of the rates along the isoelectronic sequence of the 2p53s 3P0,2 − 2p6 1S0 transitions and their competition with the 2p53s 3P0 − 2p53s 3P1 M1 and the 2p53s 3P2 − 2p6 1S0 M2 decays. For the 2p53s 3P0 state the magnetic-field-induced transition becomes the dominant decay channel for the light elements even in a relatively weak magnetic field, and it will therefore prove useful in diagnostics of the strength of magnetic fields in different plasmas. The influence of an external magnetic field on the lifetime of the 2p53s 3P2 state is much smaller but still observable for the ions near the neutral end of the sequence. As a special case, the magnetic field effect on the lifetimes of 2p53s 3P0,2 states of neutral 20Ne is discussed. It is found that the lifetimes are drastically reduced by a magnetic field, which may be an underlying reason for the discrepancies in the lifetime of the 2p53s 3P2 state between experiment [14.73(14) s] and theory (17.63 s).
