Abstract:
Transition rates for electrons in the superheavy elements Z=114, 126, 134, 145, 164 and 173 are calculated. K, L and M-shells are considered as final states. The 2 s-1 s transition of multipolarity M 1 is dominant for Z = 173 with a transition time of 10-18 s. The radical expectation values 〈r〉 and 〈r2〉1/2 are given. © 1977 Springer-Verlag.
