Abstract: Using resonance ionization spectroscopy the first-ionization potential of actinium has been determined by
analyzing different Rydberg series in two-color resonant laser excitation. Three individual Rydberg series were
investigated, converging toward the ionic ground state and toward the first- and second-excited state of the
actinium ion, respectively. A combined analysis of the convergence limits leads to a consistent value for the
first-ionization potential of Ac of 43 394.45 (19) cm−1, equivalent to 5.380 226 (24) eV.
