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

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

Optical spectroscopy of complex open-4d-shell ions Sn7+–Sn10+

We analyze the complex level structure of ions with many-valence-electron open-[Kr] 4*d*m subshells (m=7–4) with *ab initio* calculations based on configuration-interaction many-body perturbation

High-precision ab initio calculations of the spectrum of Lr+

The planned measurement of optical resonances in singly ionized lawrencium $(Z=103)$ requires accurate theoretical predictions to narrow the search window. We present high-precision, ab initio

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.
