Measurements of improved accuracy of transition frequencies from the state to several of the magnetic sub-states in deuterium are presented and analyzed. The shape of the observed resonance curves is discussed and compared with theory.
The experimental result is given for the separation, Mc/sec, for deuterium. This is combined with the result for from the preceding article to obtain the separation, Mc/sec for deuterium. From and the auxiliary constants and a new value is computed for the fine structure constant . The uncertainty stated is considered to be a limit of error for our experimental procedure without allowance for the uncertainty of the auxiliary constants.
