English abstract
In this work we report on ab initio theoretical results for the magnetic-field-induced 2s 2p 3P0 → 2s2 1S0 E1 transition for ions in the beryllium isoelectronic sequence between Z = 5 and 92. It has been proposed that the rate of the E1M1 two-photon transition 2s 2p 3P0 → 2s2 1S0 can be extracted from the lifetime of the 3P0 state in Be-like ions with zero nuclear spin by employing resonant recombination in a storage ring. This experimental approach involves a perturbing external magnetic field. The effect of this field needs to be evaluated in order to properly extract the two-photon rate from the measured decay curves. The magnetic-field-induced transition rates are carefully evaluated, and it is shown that, with a typical storage-ring field strength, it is dominant or of the same order as the E1M1 rate for low- and mid-Z ions. Results for several field strengths and ions are presented, and we also give a simple Z-dependent formula for the rate. We estimate the uncertainties of our model to be within 5% for low- and mid-Z ions and slightly larger for more highly charged ions. Furthermore we evaluate the importance of including both perturber states, 3P1 and 1P1, and it is s
