arc.divalent_atom_functions.DivalentAtom.getReducedMatrixElementJ#

DivalentAtom.getReducedMatrixElementJ(n1, l1, j1, n2, l2, j2, s=0.5)#

Reduced matrix element in \(J\) basis (symmetric notation)

Parameters:
  • n1 (int) – principal quantum number of state 1

  • l1 (int) – orbital angular momentum of state 1

  • j1 (float) – total angular momentum of state 1

  • n2 (int) – principal quantum number of state 2

  • l2 (int) – orbital angular momentum of state 2

  • j2 (float) – total angular momentum of state 2

  • s (float) – optional, total spin angular momentum of state. By default 0.5 for Alkali atoms.

Returns:

reduced dipole matrix element in \(J\) basis \(\langle j || er || j' \rangle\) (\(a_0 e\)).

Return type:

float
