Investigation of the fine structure in the 2 D sequence of sodium using level-crossing spectroscopy

Abstract
Splittings in the n 2 D sequence were measured for n=4-9. An accuracy of about 0.1% was obtained in level-crossing measurements on an atomic beam. The D states were populated by step-wise excitation, using an RF lamp and a CW dye laser. A method for measuring the sign of the spin-orbit coupling constant is demonstrated. With the present measurements, the highly anomalous n 2 D sequence in sodium has now been studied for n=3-16.
