The 5th overseas convention on Atomic Physics used to be held July 26-30, 1976 in Berkeley, California. Invited talks have been solicited which have been consultant of an important advancements because the fourth convention held in Heidelberg, Germany in 1974. during this quantity, we have now amassed the manuscripts of the invited audio system, within the trust that they symbolize a consultant to modern re­ seek in atomic physics. Experimental paintings on such issues because the look for parity violation, spectroscopy and collision approaches of quick, highly-stripped heavy ions, unique atoms, high-Rydberg states, laser spectros­ reproduction, photoelectron spectroscopy, and others are defined. The paintings defined in those manuscripts is a transparent mea­ yes of the ongoing energy of our box. One unsatisfied occasion because the final convention used to be the passing of Dr. Victor William (Bill) Cohen (1911-1974) of Brookhaven nationwide Laboratory. invoice was once one of many scientists who well-known early the necessity for private communique between atomic physicists and used to be the leading mover in constructing the current foreign convention sequence. every body who has loved the stimulation of those meetings is indebted to invoice Cohen, and we devote this quantity of the lawsuits to his memory.

Example text

A narrow light beam from the tunable laser (an optical parametric oscillator14 ) passes in turn through a Nicol prism polarizer, a waterfilled Faraday cell for modulating the polarization angle, a long alumina tube with a one-meter length of Bi vapor, and a Nicol prism analyzer. The ratio of the light intensities before and after the Nicol analyzer measures the optical rotation. The Bi vapor tube is filled with one atmosphere of He gas to retard Bi migration, and is placed in a fire-brick oven which can heat the tube to above 1550oK.

Uncertainty arising from this term limits the accuracy of a direct comparison of theory and experiment as a test of quantum electrodynamics. The main contribution to on is proportional to l~n(O) 12 tt n- 3 as is the Fermi splitting ~VnF, so the dominant part of on is independent of n. Therefore, by comparing theory and experiment for the difference 8~V2 - ~Vl' the main contribution of the nuclear structure effects, which is proportional to 02 - 01 in the difference, is eliminated. This fact was recognized some time ago and calculations of the necessary differences have been done.

As a further precaution, beams are sent through the Bi tube in opposite directions without changing H and the rotation signals subtracted. Faraday rotation should disappear whereas a PNC rotation would be reinforced. In order to look for parity effects, we scan the wavelength of the laser across the absorption line with o~f reduced to a minimum. Typically the scan is 4 wide (about 4 ~vs) and the laser sweep takes about 2 minutes per scan. The rotation signals for successive scans are added and displayed on a signal averager.
