Abstract

We have measured the absolute frequency of the excited state transition 5 P 3 2 4 D 5 2 in a Rb 87 atom with a femtosecond frequency comb, utilizing the recently developed spectroscopic technique of the double resonance optical pumping method. The absolute energy level of the 4 D 5 2 state is determined by measuring the absolute frequency of the 5 S 1 2 5 P 3 2 transition simultaneously. The hyperfine structure constants of the 4 D 5 2 state are obtained by using the measured frequency. The magnetic dipole constant, A, is determined to be ( 16.747 ± 0.010 ) MHz with an uncertainty reduced 60-fold compared with a previous result. The electric quadrupole constant, B, is determined, for what is to our knowledge the first time, to be ( 4.149 ± 0.059 ) MHz .
