Abstract
\A computational scheme, based on the theory of the continuum-bound transit ions of Bell and Seaton [J. Phys. B 18, 1589 (1985)] and the close-coupling R-matrix approach, has been developed to treat dielectronic recombination (DR) in high-lying resonance-energy regions. This scheme and our presented numerical method to compute DR in low-lying resonance-energy regions [Phys. Rev. A 62, 022706 (2000)] have been applied together to elucidate the expe rimental spectra of the DR of O6+ ions in the metastable 1s2s S-3 and 1s2s S-1 states. For comparison. a perturbative theoretical calculation of DR fo r O6+ has also been accompanied. The reasonable representation of the gener al dielectronic spectral shape is yielded by both our close-coupling and pe rturbative calculations. However, both the methods do not reproduce the exp erimental double-peak structure at -6-8 eV, This shows that the further inv estigation on DR of this kind of ions is required both experimentally and t heoretically.
