Abstract

We report experimentally determined oscillator strength distribution in the bound region of zinc corresponding to the 4 s 4 p P 1 o 3 4 s n d D 2 3 ( 23 n 55 ) transitions. The absolute photoionization cross section from the 4 s 4 p P 1 o 3 excited state at the 4 s S 1 2 2 ionization threshold has been determined as 54 ± 8 Mbarns by using the saturated absorption technique. The measured value of the photoionization cross section at threshold is used to calibrate the oscillator strengths of the above-mentioned Rydberg transitions.
