New odd-parity energy levels of the neutral lanthanum atom

Publikation: Beitrag in einer FachzeitschriftArtikelBegutachtung


The discovery of 22 new energy levels of the La atom, having odd parity, is reported. These levels were derived from an analysis of unclassified spectral lines found either in optogalvanic spectra and/or Fourier transform spectra. The reliability of results obtained from the combination principle of Ritz was verified by hyperfine structure investigations. Further three new odd-parity levels of the first La ion are found. For two already known odd-parity levels substantial changes, concerning total angular momentum and hyperfine structure constants A, must be made.
