Hyperfine separation of deuterium

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The hyperfine separation of deuterium has been measured by a spin-exchange technique in which deuterium interacts with radiating hydrogen in a hydrogen maser. Resonance of the deuterium is detected by its effect on the hydrogen oscillation power level. The result is Δν(D)=327384352.3±0.25 cps in the A1 time scale [Δν(Cs)=9192631770 cps]. A theoretical analysis of the technique and experimental details are presented. © 1966 The American Physical Society.
