We present a new code, RCF("Radiative-Collisional code based on FAC"), which is used to simulate steady-state plasmas under non local thermodynamic equilibrium condition, especially photoinization dominated plasmas. RCF takes almost all of the radiative and collisional atomic processes into rate equation to interpret the plasmas systematically. The Flexible Atomic Code (FAC) supplies all the atomic data RCF needed, which insures calculating completeness and consistency of atomic data. With…

Studies of x-ray emission properties of photoionized plasmas

In this paper three aspects of photoionized plasmas are discussed in both laboratory and astrophysical contexts. First, the importance of accurate atomic/ionic data for the analysis of photoionized

Measurement and analysis of K-shell lines of silicon ions in laser plasmas

We present laboratory measurement and theoretical analysis of silicon K-shell lines in plasmas produced by Shenguang II laser facility, and discuss the application of line ratios to diagnose the

Contribution of satellite lines to temperature diagnostics with He-like triplet lines in photoionized plasma

In the present paper, the He α triplet line ratios (resonance, intercombination, and forbidden lines) are computed for photoionized plasmas, when the contributions of nearby satellite lines are taken

Electron impact excitation cross section calculations of the fine structure transitions of Mo and their applications in the diagnostics of the laser induced Mo plasma

The current work reports a detailed calculation of electron impact excitation cross sections for the fine structure transitions of Mo from the manifolds 4d 55s, 4d 45s 2, 4d 6 and 4d 55p to the

Effects of satellite lines in fittings of He-like triplets of X-ray Spectra

Abstract We estimate the wind speeds with a Bayesian inference and a Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) tool for the high resolution X-ray spectra of Vela X-1, to understand the effect of satellite

Spectral irradiance of singly and doubly ionized zinc in low-intensity laser-plasma ultraviolet light sources

The absolute spectral irradiances of laser-plasmas produced from planar zinc targets are determined over a wavelength region of 150 to 250 nm. Strong spectral radiation is generated using 60 ns

Physical parameter estimation with MCMC from observations of Vela X-1

We present a parameter estimate for continua, and He-like triplets of the high resolution X-ray spectra with a Bayesian inference and a Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) tool. The method is applied for

Bow shocks formed by a high-speed laser-driven plasma cloud interacting with a cylinder obstacle

A bow shock is formed in the interaction of a high-speed laser-driven plasma cloud with a cylinder obstacle. Its temporal and spatial structures are observed by shadowgraphy and interferometry. The

Charge-state distribution and Doppler effect in an expanding photoionized plasma.

First comparisons of the measured charge state distributions with x-ray photoionization models show reasonable agreement and line opacities are well fitted by a curve-of-growth analysis which includes the effects of velocity gradients in a one-dimensional expanding plasma.
