Abstract

In a recent paper Kompitsas, et al. [ J. Opt. Soc. Am. B 11, 697– 702 ( 1994)] presented new spectroscopic measurements for the 4snf levels in neutral Zn and used these results to deduce a value for the dipole polarizability αd of the Zn+ ion. We point out other data sources that are relevant to this determination and present additional analyses and computations that test the value that they reported. In this manner we have obtained the value αd(Zn+) = 15.4 ± 0.5a03, which confirms with reduced uncertainties the value reported by Kompitsas et al.
