Abstract

Two-photon, double-resonance photoionization spectroscopy has been used to study highly excited bound and autoionizing states in Ti (Ti i). Multichannel quantum defect theory has been used to analyze the spectra and to determine the ionization potential of Ti. A new ionization potential of 55 072.5 ± 0.3 cm−1 is reported, which differs significantly from the previously accepted value.

Portion of the autoionization spectrum of Ti as excited from intermediate level 3 d 2 4 s 4 p z 3 G 4 ° . The Ti+a4F5/2 threshold is indicated by the arrow, while the a4F3/2 channel is open throughout this energy region. For n ≥ 34, the (a4F7/2)nd lines divide into an unperturbed series (solid markers) and a perturbed series (dashed markers).
