Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Using laser-atomic-beam spectroscopy and a special field arrangement the Stark shift of the sodium D1-line was determined to be 48.986 (112) kHz (kV/cm)-2. Using the literature value for the scalar polarizability of 22S 1 2, 39.7 (8) kHz (kV/cm)-2, the polarizability of 22P 1 2 was derived to be 88.69 (81) kHz (kV/cm)-2.
