Abstract: Theoretical ground-state configurations of lanthanide ions calculated with the Cowan suite of codes are presented. Theoretical 4d - 4f and 4p - 4d spectra of Pd-like to Rb-like lanthanide ions calculated using the FAC relativistic code are also shown. The effects of configuration interaction are investigated and results compare favorably with experiments where, for increasing nuclear charge, strong emission peaks are observed to move towards shorter wavelength. The application of these strong emitters as extreme ultraviolet radiation sources, a topic of emerging interest, is discussed.
