Hello! Are there any experimental measurements or theoretical calculations of the electric dipole moment of any Rydberg state for CaF or BaF? Thank you!

Greetings,

The two most comprehensive compilations of physical constants of the electronic states of diatomic molecules of which I am aware are:

K. P. Huber and G. Herzberg, "Constants of Diatomic Molecules" Van Nostrand Reinhold, New York, 1979.

NIST Diatomic Spectral Database

Best regards,
ES

I don't think the NIST database will have Rydberg states. It's a bit exotic.

I am confident that the information you want can be gleaned from this paper out of Bob Field's group. However, this stuff makes my head hurt. All I know is that the dipole moment is proportional to the slope of a plot of Stark shift splittings vs applied electric field. How that depends on the angular quantum numbers is where I get lost. @EigenState137 @amoforum @DrDu @BillKet are all people who are more comfortable than I am with this stuff.
