It is well known that an increased accuracy and confidence in the determination of such fundamental physical constants (FPC) of atomic physics as the Rydberg constant (R), the ration of the electron mass to proton mass (me/mp) and the fine structure constant (∝) play a significant part in the solution of major problems of theoretical physics and quantum metrology /1,2/.
