NAME: QUIZ 3 PHYS852 Quantum Mechanics II, Spring 2009 Hydrogen Fine Structure Quiz: a.) List the three efects which combine to give the ±ne structure, and give a brie² description o² each physical process. b.) Which o² the three terms is responsible ²or selecting a speci±c basis in the n , , s , subspace? What are the good eigenstates ²or computing the ±ne structure via perturbation theory?

Unformatted text preview: c.) On what quantum numbers should the ±rst-order ±ne-structure energy shi²t depend? d.) Write a ²ormula which gives a crude order-o²-magnitude estimate o² the ±ne-structure shi²t o² the hydrogen 1s level (you probably want to make use o² the ±ne-structure constant). e.) Use your ²ormula to estimate the 1s ±ne structure shi²t in Joules and/or electron Volts....
