Abstract:

The rotational magnetic moments of the diatomic alkalis have been measured by the molecular-beam magnetic-resonance method. The values obtained for the gyromagnetic ratios in nm are Li2, 0.10797 Na2, 0.03892 K2, 0.02162 Rb2, 0.00953 Cs2, 0.00547. The effect of the electric quadrupole interaction on the resonance is investigated, and found to lead to a slight broadening, but, in the limit of high J, to no displacement. An interpretation of the results in terms of the irrotationalflow model used by Espe for hydrogen is given. Author
