Hard to flip the helicity of an
electron than a muon
Leptons are left-handed in the V-A weak
interaction. Anti-leptons are right-handed.
Flipping a helicity requires boosting to the rest
frame of a particle. The electron is nearly

Question; What three quantum numbers
appear in the solution ?
Ans: n, l, m
Review Question: What are the energy levels ?
En =
This result agrees
with the Bohr model
What happens to the l, m
quantum numbers ?
Here l=0,1,2,….n-1
This result does not agree
with the Bohr model.
Question: Why ? What
happens for n =1 ?
Here m=0,±1, ±2,…. ±l
The energies of the l, ml levels are degenerate !
Magnetic moments (from the Bohr model to QM)
Let’s calculate the magnetic dipole moment in
the Bohr model (assume electron moves with
velocity v at a radius r around the nucleus)

Magnetic moments from orbital ang. momentum
Now let’s put aside the Bohr model and get
the precise results from QM

Here ml=0,±1,±2…±l
This result explains the Zeeman effect.
mB = 5.788 ´10-5 eV / T = 9.274 ´10 -24 J / T
• Hierarchy of effects:
• Fine structure (spin-orbit coupling): this
involves the interaction of orbital magnetic
moment and the spin magnetic moment of
the electron. Need the Dirac equation.
• Hyperfine structure: Interaction of nuclear
spin magnetic moment and electron spin
magnetic moment.
Question: Can you give a simple argument for the relative
size of these effects ?
Ans: Key is the mass term in the nuclear
magnetic moment.
The Lamb shift is
somewhat smaller.
The 21 cm line of hydrogen in Radio Astronomy
Question: What is the physical
origin of the famous 21cm line ?
(first detected in 1951)
The spins of the nucleus and
electron are shown. A “spin
flip” transition is the origin of
the 21cm photon (5.87μ eV)

What happens to atomic energy levels
in a B field ?
For l>0, the levels are split according to the
ml value. This is called the Zeeman effect.
