Rb O-O Hyperfine Transition in Evacuated Wall-Coated Cell at Melting Temperature


Journal Article

Using an evacuated wall-coated cell, a high-resolution measurement was made of the behavior of the Rb87 O-O hyperfine transition frequeney near the melting temperature of the coaling. Several features attributed to phase changes in the coating were evident. Notable were a phase transition from a super-cooled state and three regions of zero or small temperature coefficient of hyperflne frequency. The hyperfine resonance persists above the melting point of the coating. Data were analyzed in terms of an adsorption model for the Rb-wall interaction. The 10 Hz FWHM intrinsic hyperfiiie line width provided evidence for a high-quality wall coating. Copyright © 1987 by The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.
