Abstract

One- and two-photon transitions between neighboring Rydberg states of rubidium with principal quantum numbers ranging from n = 50 to n = 63 have been studied. From these transition frequencies, corresponding to wavelengths in the centimeter domain, new values for quantum defects and fine- and hyperfine-structure splittings were obtained. The hyperfine structure of the 2S1/2 states was resolved up to n = 59. The data are compared with optically determined spectroscopic parameters, and fair agreement is found in most cases.
