Modern Methods of Optical Spectroscopy
We have come to know optical spectroscopy in the preceding chapters as the most important method for the investigation of the electronic shells of atoms and for understanding atomic structure. We have seen that in many cases, extremely small splittings or shifts of the spectral lines must be determined with a high spectral resolution. Progress in our knowledge of atomic structure and of the fundamentals of quantum mechanics has only been possible through a continuous process of improvements in experimental techniques.
