Atomic Physics and Related Subjects.: Communications to Nature.: The Nuclear Moment of Lithium

Article metrics


THE fact that the hyperfine structures of spectral lines are so much narrower than the multiplets in the same spectrum is due principally to the fact that the latter are produced by the magnetic moment of the electrons, while the former originate from the magnetic moment of the nucleus, which is usually attributed to nuclear protons, and is, therefore, about 1840 times smaller.
