We have calculated the effective g-factor for the transitions in hydrogen-like atoms and applied it to atomic cesium. We have identified that not only the g* factor in this case is an integer number g* = 1, but also the existence of possible entangled states related to the above tran-sitions. Furthermore we have used the above result to calculate the transition energies which are in complete agreement (within the 1% margin error). Such results can give access to the production of new laser lights from atomic cesium.
