Angle-resolved properties of characteristic x-rays as a tool for determining small level splittings in highly charged ions — •Zhongwen Wu1,2, Nikolay Kabachnik3,4, Andrey Surzhykov1, Chenzhong Dong2, and Stephan Fritzsche1,51Helmholtz Institute Jena, Germany — 2Northwest Normal University, China — 3European XFEL, Germany — 4Lomonosov Moscow State University, Russia — 5University of Jena, Germany

The angular distribution and the photon-photon angular correlation of x-ray emissions have been studied for two-step radiative cascades that proceed via overlapping intermediate resonances. Special attention was placed especially upon the questions of how the level splitting of the intermediate resonances affects the x-ray emissions and whether angle-resolved measurements can help determine small splittings in the level structure of highly charged ions. As an example, detailed computations within the multiconfiguration Dirac-Fock method were performed for the two-step cascade 1s2p2   Ji=1/2,  3/2 → 1s2s2p   J=1/2,  3/2  +  γ1 → 1s22s   Jf=1/2  +  γ1  +  γ2 of lithium-like ions, for which a level crossing of the two 1s2s2p   J=1/2,  3/2 intermediate resonances occurs in the range 74 ≤ Z ≤ 79. A remarkably strong effect associated with finite lifetime and level splitting of these intermediate resonances was found for the angular distribution and the photon-photon angular correlation. We therefore suggest that accurate angle-resolved measurements of x-ray emissions may serve as a tool for determining small level splittings [1].
