Hyperfine Structure in the Spectrum of Copper


THE principal copper doublet at 3248 and 3275 has been studied with great care in the fourth and fifth orders of the large concave grating of the Physical Institute at Tübingen. Each line consists of a very sharp, narrow doublet of separation, 0.043 ± 0.001 A. or 0.41 ± 0.01 cm.1, the long wave-length component being about twice as strong as the short wave-length component.
