Precise Theory of Levels of Hydrogen and Deuterium: The Two-Photon Radiative Corrections

Published

Author(s)

U Jentschura, Peter J. Mohr

Abstract

The two-photon radiative effects are significant quantum electrodynamic correction to the energy levels of hydrogen and deuterium atoms. Calculations of high-order contributions to this correction are reviewed, and the results needed to evaluate energy levels for states with n 200 are given. The results of such an evaluation are available on the NIST Physics Laboratory Web site at physics.nist.gov/hdel.
