Spectra of the copperlike ions Sb22+ and Te23+ were observed with a laser-produced plasma and a 10.7-m grazing-incidence spectrograph. Wavelengths, energy levels for all n = 4 and n = 5 configurations, and ionization energies were determined for each ion. For Sb22+, the 6g levels were also determined. Wavelengths for the 4s–4p resonance lines are compared with recent measurements [ J. Opt. Soc. Am. B 8, 1799 ( 1991)] obtained with a tokamak plasma and with semiempirical values [ Phys. Rev, A 44, 148 ( 1991)] obtained from smoothed corrections to relativistic calculations.
