The isotope shift of the bound-bound electric dipole transition at 1162.75 nm in the osmium anion was measured by high-precision collinear laser spectroscopy. The transition was observed in all naturally occurring isotopes, including 184Os- with a natural abundance of 0.02%. We combined the data with our prior measurements of the hyperfine structure in 187Os- and 189Os- and used them to determine experimental values for the isotope shift coefficients. The normal mass shift, specific mass shift, and field shift coefficients were found to be MNMS=141.4 GHz u, M SMS=2.4(12.6) THz u, and F=16.2(9.9) GHz fm-2, respectively. Theoretical values for the MSMS and F parameters were calculated based on a series of relativistic configuration interaction computations and a Fermi-like charge distribution and found to be in good agreement with the experimental values. © 2011 American Physical Society.

It was recently shown that dielectronic recombination measurements can be used for accurately inferring changes in the nuclear mean-square charge radii of highly charged lithiumlike neodymium. To make use of this method to derive information about the nuclear charge distribution for other elements and isotopes, accurate electronic isotope shift parameters are required. In this work, we calculate and discuss the relativistic mass- and field-shift factors for the two 2s2S 1/2-2p2P1/2,3/2o transitions along the lithium isoelectronic sequence. Based on the multiconfiguration Dirac-Hartree-Fock method, the electron correlation and the Breit interaction are taken into account systematically. The analysis of the isotope shifts for these two transitions along the isoelectronic sequence demonstrates the importance and competition between the mass shifts and the field shifts. © 2012 American Physical Society.

During the past decade, the Ratip program has been developed to calculate the electronic structure and properties of atoms and ions. This code, which is now organized as a suite of programs, provides a powerful platform today to generate and evaluate atomic data for open-shell atoms, including level energies and energy shifts, transition probabilities, Auger parameters as well as a variety of excitation, ionization and recombination amplitudes and cross sections. Although the Ratip program focus on properties with just one electron within the continuum, recent emphasis was placed also on second-order processes as well as on the combination of different types of transition amplitudes in order to explore more complex spectra. Here, I present and discuss the (design of the) Ratip program and make available a major part of the code for public use. Selected examples show a few of its possible applications, while reference is made to a much wider range of computations as supported by the program. The Ratip program has been developed as a scalar Fortran 90/95 code and provides a simple make feature which help port the code to different platforms and architectures. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.

Future FAIR experiments have to deal with very high input rates, large track multiplicities, make full event reconstruction and selection on-line on a large dedicated computer farm equipped with heterogeneous many-core CPU/GPU compute nodes. To develop efficient and fast algorithms, which are optimized for parallel computations, is a challenge for the groups of experts dealing with the HPC computing. Here we present and discuss the status and perspectives of the data reconstruction and physics analysis software of one of the future FAIR experiments, namely, the CBM experiment. © Owned by the authors, published by EDP Sciences, 2015.

The new international accelerator Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research (FAIR) which is currently under construction in Darmstadt has key features that offer a wide range of exciting new opportunities in the field of atomic physics and related fields. The facility will provide highest intensities of relativistic beams of both stable and unstable heavy nuclei, in combination with the strong electromagnetic fields generated by high-power lasers, thus allowing to widen atomic physics research into completely new domains. In the current contribution, a short overview of the SPARC (Stored Particle Atomic physics Research Collaboration) research programme at the FAIR facility is given. Furthermore, we present the current strategy for the realization of the envisioned SPARC physics programme at the modularized start version of the FAIR facility. © 2013 The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.
