Abstract:

The atomic beam E-H gradient balance method was used to measure the zz components alpha sub zzM sub J of the diagonalized polarizability tensors in metastable triplet-P2 neon, krypton, and xenon, in their M sub J1 and 2 magnetic substates. These data are sufficient to determine the polarizability tensors in all the substates, as well as the spherically averaged polarizabilities alpha. The gross structure of each of the metastable rare gases is similar to that of the ground state of the corresponding alkali, and it is found that the average polarizabilities are comparable. Author
