Abstract

We report a measurement of the radium ion's 7p(2)P(3/2) state branching fractions and improved theoretical calculations. With a single laser-cooled Ra-226(+) ion we measure the P-3/2 branching fractions to the 7s(2)S(1/2) ground state 0.876 78(20), the 6d D-2(5/2) state 0.107 59(10), and the 6d D-2(3/2) state 0.015 63(21).
