Abstract

The spectroscopy of atoms and ions, using fast-beam methods, in particular the beam-foil excitation technique, is reviewed, with emphasis on results obtained after 1980. Accurate measurements of wavelengths and excitation energies are now possible for practically any ion. The results are discussed with respect to isoelectronic sequences (including He-, Li-, Be-, F-, Ne-, Na-, Mg-, Cu-, and Zn-like ions), and comparisons are made with spectroscopic data obtained by using other experimental methods as well as with theoretical predictions. Recent studies of inner-shell excited levels are discussed in some detail. Some results of measurements using novel ion-beam techniques are also reviewed.
