We have calculated the Zeeman-fine energies of atomic Lithium (Li) by using the varying effective Landé g-factor method. We take the principle quantum number in the range; (2 ≤<i>n</i> ≤10 ). For this range we find 26 different energy values and 325 wavelengths some of which are the same. The Doppler shift is found to be Δλ=±0.004λ. The Doppler shift-corrected wavelengths are in perfect agreement with the observed (NIST) values for atomic Li.

The investigation of hydrogen-like atoms with their low ionization potential and relative simplicity of their outer shell structure, have attracted a lot of attention. During the last two decades with the advent of laser cooling [1-4] and magnetic trapping [

transitions in hydrogen-like atoms and showed that the entanglements of and states, occur at. The aim of the present study is to calculate the Zeeman-fine energies and the spectrum of the atomic Lithium by using the above mentioned varying effective Landé g-factor method. The outline of the present study is as follows: In Section 2.1 the energy levels of Hydrogen-like atoms in the presence of a uniform magnetic field is studied. In Section 2.2 we calculate the Zeeman-fine energies of Li atom. In Section 2.3 we establish the connection between the Zeeman-fine energies, effective Landé-g factors, and the quantum flux of both photon and the electronic orbits corresponding to the entangled states. Section 2.4 gives the detailed calculation of the Zeeman-fine energies of Li atom. The calculation of the Doppler shift is given in Section 2.5. Section 3 is the conclusions.

Here the constant is the characteristic of each atom and determined from the ionization energy. Substituting the value of and in Equation (1), we find:

where is the cyclotron angular frequency corresponding to. As was discussed by Saglam et al. [

or

which depends on and directly and depends on indirectly as the range of is determined by. The plot of these functions with respect to gives us the possible values in the energy expression given by (1). At the first glance we see that the crossing of these lines correspond to integer values of such as:. However in the following section we will see that for Li atom the allowed values of are restricted only with the three odd integers. These are:. In the present study we will consider only values up to 10. We will see that in the range of () we get 26 different energy values which produce 325 wavelengths some of which are the same. For each value we also calculate the Doppler shift and find that it is equal to: . The Doppler shift-corrected wavelengths are in perfect agreement with the observed (NIST) values [

In Li atom we have 3 electrons altogether. Therefore it will be easy to study as a function of. The plots for and are given in Figures 1(a) and 2(a) respectively; For we have and hence, so from Equation (3) we get two lines crossing at. Therefore the first two electrons occupy the entangled state, with the energy corresponding to the crossing energies of and states, which is the entanglement at (

Therefore the values in this reduced zone () will give us all the possible energy values.

Let us assume that the ground state electron [the electron occupying the () entangled state at] is excited to a higher level by the absorption of a single photon. Now we ask: What is quantum flux difference between the final and initial states? Recently Saglam and Sahin [10,11] showed that, depending on its helicity photon carries an intrinsic magnetic moment and hence a quantum flux of where is the flux quantum. Therefore in the end of a one photon absorption process the quantum flux difference between the final and initial quantum states of electron must be equal to the intrinsic quantum flux of the absorbed photon which is equal to. On the other hand Saglam et al. [

also calculated the quantized magnetic flux through the electronic orbits of Dirac hydrogen atom corresponding to the. It is shown that the quantum flux is given by:. For the present case we have the entangled states with the energies given by (1) where we have () which stands for. Therefore for the present case the quantum flux through the orbits corresponding to the entangled states in hydrogen-like atoms will be given by:

We have stated that when the ground state electron is

excited to a higher level with an absorption of one photon (or more photons) the flux difference between two quantum orbits must be equal to integer multiples of (). Therefore the difference of the flux in (4) must be equal to integer multiples of (). In (4), since we have, the above requirement is possible

only when the change of between two states is equal to an even integer number:

We have said that in Li atom the ground state electron (2s electron) occupies the entangled state of and at. Therefore a photonic transition occurs either to the entangled states with or. In the present study we will consider only values up to 10. We will see that in this range () we get 26 different energy values which produce 325 wavelengths some of which are the same.

From the (NIST) values, the ionization energy of Li atom is, while the smallest amount of energy that allows a transition from the ground state to the nearest excited state() is equal to

which corresponds to 6707.91 Å. In this transition the initial and the final value of is the same and equal to unity:. Therefore we can write

Therefore from (2) the energies of the initial and final states are:

and

(7)

respectively. The solutions of (6) and (7) gives us that and. Substitution of these values in (2) gives the Zeeman-fine energies of Li atom:

In the present study we will take values in the range (). For each value of substituting the values of and taking we get 26 different energy values which are given in

The above calculations are based on the assumption that the center of mass of the Li atom is at rest, but only the outermost electron is moving. But since the experimental

results are taken from the moving Li atom, there will be a small difference coming from the Doppler shift. To calculate the Doppler shift we take two different repeated wavelengths from the (NIST) database. For example if we and. The corresponding calculated values are and respectively. Now we can calculate the average Doppler shift by using the above values:

So the magnitude of the Doppler shift is found to be

We have calculated the effective Landé g-factors, , related to the Zeeman-fine energies and the spectrum of the atomic Lithium (Li) by using the varying effective Landé g-factor method. It is shown the allowed values of are restricted only with three odd integers () and this result is independent of the limit of the principle quantum number,. In the present study we take the principle quantum number in the range; (). For this range we find 26 different energy values and 325 wavelengths some of which are the same. The present calculations are based on the assumption that the center of mass of the Li atom is at rest, but only the outermost electron is moving. But since the experimental results are taken from the moving Li atom, there will be a small difference coming from the Doppler shift. The Doppler shift is found to be. The Doppler shift-corrected wavelengths are in perfect agreement with the observed (NIST) values for atomic Li. The present results suggest new wavelengths such as

, and

should be observed. Applications of the above treatment can give access to the production of new laser lights from atomic Lithium as well. Extending the range of to () will allow us to calculate all the observed wavelengths for Li atom. A more detailed study will be presented in the future.
