Abstract:
Energies of the 148 (3l3l'3l") states for aluminiumlike ions with Z=14100 are evaluated to second order in relativistic manybody perturbation theory. Secondorder Coulomb and BreitCoulomb interactions are included. Corrections are made to lowest order for the frequencydependent Breit interaction and for the Lamb shift. A detailed discussion of the various contributions to the energy levels is given for aluminiumlike germanium (Z=32). Comparisons of the calculated energy levels with available experimental data are made for the entire sequence.
