Abstract

Radiative lifetimes of ten odd-parity levels of V I belonging to the 3d34s4p and 3d44p configurations and of 11 odd-parity levels of V II belonging to the 3d34p configuration are reported. The lifetimes were measured with use of single-step excitation and time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy. The neutral and singly ionized vanadium atoms were produced in a laser-induced vanadium plasma.
