Multichannel Quantum-Defect Study of q reversals in Overlapping Resonances in Systems involving 1 Open and 2 Closed Channels


This study examined the overlapping resonances in the systems involving 1 open and 2 closed channels using the phase-shifted version of multichannel quantum-defect theory (MQDT). The results showed that 21 patterns for the q reversals in the autoionization spectra are possible depending on the relative arrangements of the two simple poles and roots of the quadratic equations. Complete cases could be generated easily using the q zero planes determined using only 3 asym-metric spectral line profile indices. The transition of the spectra of the coarse interloper Rydberg series from the lines into a structured continuum by being dispersed onto the entire Rydberg series was found. The overall behavior of the time delays was found to be governed by the dense Rydberg series, which is quite different from the one of the autoioni-zation cross sections that is governed by an interloper, indicating that different dynamics prevail for them. This is in con-trast to the two channel system where both quantities behave similarly. The dynamics obtained in the presence of over-lapping resonances is as follows. The absorption process is instant and dominated by a transition to the interloper line. This process is followed by rapid leakage into the dense Rydberg series, which has a longer residence time before ioni-zation than that of the interloper state. This is because the orbiting period is proportional to ν3 so that an excited electron has a shorter lifetime in the interloper state belonging to a lower member of the Rydberg series.
