A so-called XUV excess has been suspected with the relative fluxes of Fe XVIII and Fe XIX lines observed in the XUV and EUV ranges of the spectrum of the star Capella as observed by the Chandra spacecraft, even after correction for interstellar absorption. This excess becomes apparent in the comparison of the observations with simulations of stellar spectra obtained using collisional-radiative models that employ, for example, the Atomic Plasma Emission Code (APEC) or the Flexible Atomic Code (FAC). We have addressed this problem by laboratory studies using the Livermore electron beam ion trap (EBIT).
