Abstract:

Experimental and theoretical research on atomic inner-shell physics has been performed. Relativistic calculations of energy levels and transition rates have been performed, including configuration interaction and quantum electrodynamic effects. Cross sections for inner-shell ionization by slow protons have been computed relativistically. The dynamics of inner-shell processes has been studied through experiments with sycnhrotron radiation. Based on resonant scattering theory, a unified theory has been developed that describes resonant Raman processes at threshold, post-collision interaction above threshold, and the traditional two-step excitation-deexcitation model in the high-energy limit. A study of multiphoton multiionization in strong laser fields has been initiated. Keywords Bibliographies X rays.
