Determination of gJ(He4, 2S13)gJ(H1, 1S122): Resolution of a discrepancy


Journal Article

A new measurement of the gJ factor in the 2S13 metastable state of He4 has been made using an optical-pumping technique. Our result is gJ(He4, 2S13)gJ(H1, 1S122)=1-23.15(10)×10-6. This value agrees with theory and provides confirmation of a recent atomic-beam measurement. Further doubt is cast on an earlier optical-pumping determination, thereby resolving a possible discrepancy between theory and experiment. © 1975 The American Physical Society.
