Dielectronic Recombination Calculations for Fe15+

Savin, Daniel Wolf; Kwon, D. H.

Dielectronic recombination (DR) of Na-like Fe15+ forming Mg-like Fe14+ via excitation of a 2l core electron has been investigated. We find that configuration interaction (CI) between DR resonances with different captured electron principal quantum numbers n can lead to a significant reduction in resonance strengths for n ≥ 5. Including this form of CI accounts for most of the discrepancy between previous theoretical and experimental results. Here we briefly present our results and discuss their implications for the modeling of cosmic plasmas.
