i am working with cold atoms, alkali atoms specifically
Is there any book on the calculation of the transition matrix elements between different hyperfine levels?
I know the wigner-eckart theorem is central to this problem, but there are still a lot of stuffs to deal with.
For example, are the transition to the D1 and D2 lines share the same reduced matrix element? or almost the same?
all books i can find only treat trivial problems.
