Abstract

We report progress towards making a precise measurement of the 2S Lamb shift in singly-ionised helium by spectroscopy of the 2S-3S transition. The motivation for the experiment is discussed with reference to recent developments in the theory of quantum electrodynamics (QED) and a description of the apparatus and techniques used is given.
