Modulation of Mercury Resonance Fluorescence Under Pulsed Electric Fields: Measurement of Differential Stark Shifts
The study of the Stark effect dates from 1913 when Stark1 and Lo Surdo2 independently observed structure on the Balmer lines from atomic hydrogen subjected to an electric field. The investigation of Stark shifts in atoms other than hydrogen has required experimental techniques with resolution higher than that first used, and the history of the effect reveals the attention that has been given towards the development of such techniques.
