  author={Li Ji and Q. D. Wang and John M Kwan}
We have developed a non-equilibrium ionization code based on updated atomic data. A version of the code has been optimized so that the calculation can be done efficiently and accurately enough for comparison with X-ray CCD spectra. We also self-consistently include recombination into highly excited levels, which is important in some non-equilibrium cases but has generally been ignored in the past. We show example applications to illustrate the characteristics of the code and its combination… CONTINUE READING
