The sodium D2-line in electric and magnetic fields - Part II. Perpendicularly crossed fields

Abstract

The influence of perpendicularly crossed electric and magnetic fields of comparable strength on the hyperfine components of the sodium D2-line was studied by means of laser-atomic-beam spectroscopy. The observed spectra show changes in the polarization type (σ, π) when one of the fields becomes dominant relative to the other. Theoretical calculations confirm the experimental observations.
