Abstract

Radiative lifetimes for 14 odd-parity levels with the energy range between 31,654.79 and 47,184.52cm1 of Mo I have been measured using the time-resolved laser-induced fluorescence technique. The lifetime values range from 7.7 to 53.6 ns. Branching fraction measurements of these levels were performed based on the emission spectrum of a hollow cathode lamp. By combining the measured lifetimes and branching fractions, absolute transition probabilities and oscillator strengths for 130 transitions in the wavelength range extending from 275.430 to 600.478 nm have been derived.
