  1. 2.3 Fine structure Relativistic effects lead to small splittings of the atomic energy levels called fine structure. We estimated the size of this structure in Section 1.4 by comparing the speed of electrons in classical orbits with the speed of light. In this section we look at how to calculate fine structure by treating relativistic effects as a perturbation to the solutions of the Schrodinger equation. This approach requires the concept that electrons have spin.

  2. 2.3.1 Spin of the electron_1 In addition to the evidence provided by observations of the fine structure itself, that is described in this section, two other experiments showed that the electron has spin angular momentum, not just orbital angular momentum. One of these pieces of experimental evidence for spin was the observation of the so-called anomalous Zeeman effect. For many atoms, e.g. hydrogen and sodium, the splitting of their spectral lines in a magnetic field does not have the pattern predicted by the normal Zeeman effect (that we found classically in Section 1.8). This anomalous Zeeman effect has a straightforward explanation in terms of electron spin (as shown in Section 5.5). The second experiment was the famous Stern-Gerlach experiment that will be described in Section 6.4.1.
