Hi there, I was wondering if anybody would be able to help me on a question I have regarding the Sokolov-Ternov effect. 1. I understand that an electron can be configured "spin up" or "spin down" and that the down state has a higher energy. However, apparently the probability for transition to the down state is greater than to the up state? Shouldn't it be the other way around with the energy difference as it is? Thanks for any help.
