The status of experimental measurements and theoretical calculations of the hyperfine induced 2s2p3P0→2s21S0 transition rate in Be-like ions is reviewed. Possible reasons, such as external electromagnetic fields and competing E1M1 two-photon transitions, for presently existing significant discrepancies between experiment and theory are discussed. Finally, directions for future research are outlined.

Unexpected transitions induced by spin-dependent, hyperfine and external magnetic-field interactions

Unexpected transitions are induced by weaker interactions not included in the gross structure model of the ion under investigation. We discuss different examples of such decay channels, starting with

Relativistically prolonged lifetime of the 2s2p 3P0 level of zero nuclear-spin beryllium-like ions

The E1M1 transition rate of the 2 s 2 p 3 P 0 → 2 s 2 1 S 0 ?> line in beryllium-like ions has been calculated within the framework of relativistic second-order perturbation theory. Both



Heavy ion storage rings

A brief overview of synchrotron storage rings for heavy ions, which are presently under construction in different accelerator laboratories is given. Ions ranging from protons up to uranium ions at
