Abstract

We report a precise measurement of hyperfine structure in the 3S(1/2) state of the odd isotope of Li, namely Li-7. The state is excited from the ground 2S(1/2) state (which has the same parity) using two single-photon transitions via the intermediate 2P(3/2) state. The value of the hyperfine constant we measure is A = 93.095(52) MHz, which resolves two discrepant values reported in the literature measured using other techniques. Our value is also consistent with theoretical calculations.
