Abstract

A CO2-pumped far-infrared (FIR) laser has been used to drive transitions between S and P levels of 4He Rydberg states with the same principal quantum number (n). The levels are tuned to resonance with the fixed-frequency FIR laser through application of an intense magnetic field. Measurements of such transitions are particularly valuable as they provide high-resolution data for low L states, a previously ill-defined area in the otherwise well-known energy-level structure of 4He.
