Transition amplitudes between hyperfine levels

  1. 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.
