Selection rules for electric dipole transitions

(p.120) 5 Selection rules for electric dipole transitions
Atomic and Laser Spectroscopy

Alan Corney

Oxford University Press

The quantum-mechanical selection rules for electric dipole radiative transitions between atomic energy levels are derived, firstly for one-electron atoms without spin, and then including spin angular momentum. The discussion is extended to many-electron atoms and rules for L, S, and J quantum numbers are derived.

Keywords:   selection rules, electric dipole transitions, one-electron atoms, many-electron atoms
