Lamb-peak spectrum of the HD (2-0) P(1) line

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review


A saturation spectroscopy measurement of the P(1) line of the (2-0) band in HD is performed in a sensitivecavity-enhanced optical setup involving frequency comb calibration. The spectral signature is that of a Lambpeak, in agreement with a density-matrix model description involving 9 hyperfine components and 16 crossoverresonances oftype. Comparison of the experimental spectra with the simulations yields a rovibrationaltransition frequency at 209 784 242 007 (20) kHz. Agreement is found with a first-principles calculation inthe framework of nonadiabatic quantum electrodynamics within 2σ, where the combined uncertainty is fullydetermined by theory.
