We present a detailed study of the radiative potential method [V. V. Flambaum and J. S. M. Ginges, Phys. Rev. A 72, 052115 (2005)PLRAAN1050-294710.1103/PhysRevA.72.052115], which enables the accurate inclusion of quantum electrodynamics (QED) radiative corrections in a simple manner in atoms and ions over the range 10≤Z≤120, where Z is the nuclear charge. Calculations are performed for binding energy shifts to the lowest valence s, p, and d waves over the series of alkali-metal atoms Na to E119…

We investigate the ground state properties of singly charged chlorine (Cl−) and gold (Au−) negative ions by employing four-component relativistic many-body methods. In our approach, we attach an

Accurate determination of energy levels, hyperfine structure constants, lifetimes and dipole polarizabilities of triply ionized tin isotopes

We have investigated the energies, magnetic dipole hyperfine structure constants (Ahyf) and electric dipole (E1) matrix elements of a number of low-lying states of triply ionized tin (Sn3+) by

Precision measurement of the ionization energy and quantum defects ofK39i

We present absolute-frequency measurements in ultracold 39K samples of the transitions from the ground state to np Rydberg states. A global nonlinear regression of the np1/2 and np3/2 term values

QED radiative corrections to the P1/22−P3/22 fine structure in fluorinelike ions

Ab initio calculations of QED radiative corrections to the $^2P_{1/2}$ - $^2P_{3/2}$ fine-structure transition energy are performed for selected F-like ions. These calculations are nonperturbative in

QED corrections to the P1/22−P3/22 fine structure in fluorinelike ions: Model Lamb-shift-operator approach

In Li et al. [Phys. Rev. A 98, 020502(R) (2018)] it was claimed that the model-potential computations of the Lamb shift on the $^{2}P_{1/2}\ensuremath{-}^{2}P_{3/2}$ fine structure in fluorinelike

Ab initio calculations of the hyperfine structure of Ra+ and evaluations of the electric quadrupole moment Q of the 209,211,221,223Ra nuclei

The relativistic coupled-cluster method has been employed to calculate the energies, magnetic dipole, electric quadrupole and magnetic octupole hyperfine-structure constants of the low-lying states

Optical-lattice-based method for precise measurements of atomic parity violation

We propose a method for measuring parity violation in neutral atoms. It is an adaptation of a seminal work by Fortson [Phys. Rev. Lett. 70, 2383 (1993)], proposing a scheme for a single trapped ion.

Many-Electron QED with Redefined Vacuum Approach

The redefined vacuum approach provides a straightforward and streamlined derivation and facilitates its application to any electronic configuration and, based on the gauge invariance of the one-electron diagrams, can identify various gauge-invariant subsets within derived many-Electron QED contributions.
