Two-photon spectroscopy of the 6S_(1/2) → 6D_(5/2) transition of trapped atomic cesium
Two-photon spectroscopy of atomic cesium confined and cooled in a magneto-optical trap is reported. The hyperfine structure of the 6D_(5/2) state is determined with 1% accuracy. New capabilities for studying ac Stark shifts and kinetic transport for cold atoms are suggested.
