Spectroscopy of Highly Excited Levels in Alkali Atoms using a CW Tunable Dye Laser

The alkali atoms have a particularly simple electronic structure, and a very detailed theoretical understanding of their properties could perhaps be expected. Although a single valence electron is responsible for the gross features in the energy level diagram, excitations of core electrons can have a significant influence on such atomic parameters as fine and hyperfine coupling constants. With modern many-body computational techniques, such effects can be studied, and the alkali metals form natural test cases for the new theoretical methods.
