摘要: Synchrotron radiation is used to excite Ar to the intermediate states 3p(1/2)(5) (3d '[3/2](1), 5d '[3/2](1), 5s '[1/2](1,) 7s '[1/2](1)) and 3p(3/2)(5) (6d[1/2](1), 6d[3/2](1), 8s[3/2](1)), then excited by lasers to the autoionizing Rydberg series 3p(1/2)(5) np ' ([1/2](0,1), [3/2](1,2)) and nf '[5/2](2). For the intermediate states of 5s ', 7s ', and 8s, the np ' ([1/2](0) and [3/2](2)) series are observed with high intensity but not the np ' ([1/2](1) and [3/2](1)) series when the polarization vectors of two light beams are in parallel; but when they are in orthogonal, the np '[1/2](0) series disappears, the np '[3/2](2) intensity remains, and the np ' ([1/2](1) and [3/2](1)) series show up strongly. The intensity distribution of the np ' series strongly depends on the intermediate state. The spectra of the np ' series are assigned according to their intensity variation with the polarization vectors. The quantum defects determined for the series np '[1/2](0)(n=11-57), np '[312](2)(n=11-65), np '[3/2](1)(n=11-31), and nf '[5/2](2)(n=9-74) are 1.611 +/- 0.011, 1.683 +/- 0.013, 1.688 +/- 0.010, and 0.016 +/- 0.005, respectively. Our values are in excellent agreement with theoretical prediction. The spectral line shapes of autoionizing Rydberg states are analyzed with a Beutler-Fano profile. Reduced autoionization linewidths for the np '[1/2](0)(n= 11-16) series vary in the range 2549-4145 cm(-1), and the nf '[5/2](2)(n=9-11) series in 186-247 cm(-1) in reasonable agreement with theoretical prediction.
