The relativistic calculations of the cross-section , the angular-distribution parameter , and spin-polarization parameters of photoelectrons using the multiconfiguration relativistic random-phase approximation theory for the photoionization of the ion are presented. Precise energies and widths of all five Rydberg series of doublyexcited states , , , , and are determined. Our predictions are in very close agreement with experiments and are consistent with other calculations.
