Spectral Energies and Radiative Lifetimes of Rydberg States in Neutral Hydrogen

Salman Raza


Spectral Energies and radiative lifetimes under the influence of weakest bound electron (WBE) potential model theory for the following series: ns2S1/2(n≥2), np2Po1/2,3/2(n≥2), nd2D3/2,5/2(n≥3) and, nf2Fo5/2,7/2(n≥4) of Rydberg States in Neutral Hydrogen (H I) have been calculated. The use of Martin’s Expression and the Quantum Defects provided by Ritz’s formula enable us to calculate the radiative lifetimes of mentioned series. This is the very first time that we have employed WBE potential model theory and calculated spectral Energies and radiative lifetimes of above mentioned series of Rydberg states in neutral hydrogen (H I). Quantum defects and radiative lifetimes of few high lying Rydberg states in neutral hydrogen were also obtained for the first time. In comparison with previously published data, a good agreement is achieved.
