Unformatted text preview: P460  Spin 1 Spin and Magnetic Moments (skip sect. 103) Orbital and intrinsic (spin) angular momentum produce magnetic moments coupling between moments shift atomic energies Look first at orbital (think of current in a loop) the gfactor is 1 for orbital moments. The Bohr magneton is introduced as the natural unit and the  sign is due to the electrons charge L g L mvr L but r area current A I b l l m q r qv r r h = = = = = = 2 2 2 e b m e 2 h = l b l zl b l l m g l l g l l L = + = + = ) 1 ( ) 1 ( 2 h P460  Spin 2 Spin Particles have an intrinsic angular momentum  called spin though nothing is spinning probably a more fundamental quantity than mass integer spin b Bosons halfinteger b Fermions Spin particle postulated particle 0 pion Higgs, selectron 1/2 electron photino (neutralino) 1 photon 3/2 2 graviton relativistic QM uses KleinGordon and Dirac equations for spin 0 and 1/2.
