Relativistic coupled-cluster calculations of hyperfine structure and field isotope shift constants
for the 6s and 6p states in Ba + have been performed. Comparison with experimental hyperfine
structures shows agreement within a few per cent and the authors assign a similar uncertainty to the
electronic factor for the field shift: F(6s to 6p 3 2/)=-4.20 (13) GHz fm -2 . This value, which is
about 18% smaller than semi-empirical estimates used in earlier works, has been used to extract
revised values for the changes delta (r 2 ) in nuclear charge radii using optical isotope shifts for
122-148 Ba and muonic results for the stable isotopes 134-138 Ba. Also the factor B/Q, relating the
observed quadrupole hyper-fine structure to the nuclear quadrupole moment, was calculated, giving
B/Q=374 (4) MHz b -1 .
