Fine Structure and Zeeman Perturbations in Alkali Atoms

  • K. T. Hecht
Part of the Graduate Texts in Contemporary Physics book series (GTCP)


We shall now look in detail at the fine structure (magnetic spin orbit + Thomas) and Zeeman perturbation terms; i.e., we shall diagonalize the first-order Hamiltonian,
