@article{Zalialiutdinov2020TwophotonAL, title={Two-photon atomic level widths at finite temperatures}, author={T. Zalialiutdinov and A Anikin and D. Solovyev}, journal={Physical Review A}, year={2020}, volume={102}, pages={032204} }

The thermal two-photon level broadening of the excited energy levels in the hydrogen and H-like helium is evaluated via the imaginary part of thermal two-loop self-energy correction for bound electron. All the derivations are presented in the framework of rigorous quantum electrodynamic theory at finite temperatures and are applicable for the H-like ions. On this basis, we found a contribution to the level broadening induced by the blackbody radiation which is fundamentally different from the…
