Abstract

A sign error in the equations for the mixing correction factors η and ζ from [Phys. Rev. A 77, 012512 (2008)] was identified. These equations were used in our article [Opt. Express 20, 21379 (2012)], resulting in a miscalculation of the corrected hyperfine constants and nuclear octupole moment. The revised values are presented.
