Abstract

Energy levels and radiative rates have been calculated for fine-structure transitions among the lowest 89 levels of the (1s(2)) 2s(2)2p(6), 2s(2) 2p(5) 3 l, 2s(2) 2p(5) 4l, 2s2p(6) 3 l, and 2s2p(6)4l configurations of Fe XVII using the GRASP code of Dyall et al. Collision strengths have also been calculated, for transitions among the lowest 55 levels, using the recently developed Dirac atomic R-matrix code (DARC) of Norrington & Grant. The results are compared with those available in the literature, and the accuracy of the data is assessed.
