The Institute of Modern Physics ( IMP ) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences was founded in l957. After a half century of development, IMP has become the most important research center for heavy ion sciences in China. We have established active and fruitful collaboration with more than 40 institutions worldwide. IMP operates the Heavy I...
Researchers at IMP and their collaborators recently obtained new results on dielectronic recombination precision spectroscopy. The precision spectrum obtained in this work can not only be used to study the energy level structure of highly charged ions and thereby test the theory, but also provide high-precision benchmark data for the diagnosis and modeling of astrophysical and fusion plasmas.
