gJ Factor of an Ion: Determination of gJ(He+4,1S122)gJ(He4,2S13)


Journal Article

A measurement of the gJ factor of the hydrogenlike ion He+4 in its 1S122 ground state has been made using an optical pumping technique. This represents the first precision measurement of the gJ factor of a simple atomic ion. The result is gJ(He+4,1S122)g(e-)=1-70.87(30)×10-6. This value agrees with theory and provides confirmation of the Breit term 13(Z)2 to within 0.5%. © 1980 The American Physical Society.
