Measurement of polarizabilities of 5D levels of rubidium in a magnetic trap Academic Article uri icon


  • © 2015, Pleiades Publishing, Ltd. Scalar and tensor polarizabilities of 5D3/2 and 5D5/2 levels of rubidium were measured in a cloud of cold atoms. The measurements were carried out by using the shift of spectral lines corresponding to 5P–5D transitions in a constant external electric field. The following values of polarizabilities were obtained: αS(5D3/2) = 18 400 (75), αT(5D3/2) = –750 (30), α(5D5/2) = 18 600 (76), and αT(5D5/2) = –1440 (60).
