Abstract The effect of 4f orbital collapse on the spectra of Xe-like ions in the region of 4d..-->..nf,epsilonf excitations is studied with the use of a term-dependent Hartree-Fock technique. We find that the collapse of the 4f orbital is strongly term dependent, and that the appearance of intense absorption lines in the observed Ba/sup 2 +/ spectrum is due to the partial collapse of the 4f orbital in the 4d..-->..f/sup 1/P channel. We also show that after the 4f orbital is completely collapsed for high degrees of ionization along the isoelectronic sequence, the bulk of absorption oscillator strengths is concentrated at the 4d/sup 9/4f /sup 1/P level so that the only strong line in the spectrum is again the 4d..-->..4f /sup 1/P transition.
