Relativistic calculations of electric dipole (E1) allowed transition for a number of ions in the germanium sequence have been performed. Oscillator strengths for fine-structure transitions within the – array have been calculated with both the Multiconfigurational Dirac-Fock (MCDF) approach and the Relativistic Quantum Defect Orbital (RQDO) method. The results are analysed on the grounds of the theoretical data available in the literature. Also, a comparative analysis with the homologous silicon sequence is made. The spectra of systems such as Mo XI are important in the context of plasma physics and thermonuclear fusion measurements.
