Abstract

The Stark shifts and widths of atomic states in an intense electric field are calculated with the help of the 1/n-expansion. A previous theory is generalized to highly excited states of an arbitrary atom. The scaling relations for near-threshold (E≈0) resonances are obtained which are in good agreement with experiment. The modification of the Bohr-Sommerfeld quantization rule due to the finite barrier penetrability is also considered.
