Furthermore , the atomic electrons possess intrinsic magnetic moments which cannot be expressed in terms of a current density . These moments can give rise to dipole fields which vary appreciably on the atomic scale of dimensions .
For electrons in atoms the acceleration is caused by the screened Coulomb field ( 11.44 ) . ... called the Thomas factor ) , yielding 1 1 dV U = S.L ( 11.56 ) 2m2c2 as the correct spin - orbit interaction energy for an atomic electron .
Consequently in an atomic or nuclear transition the lowest nonvanishing multipole will generally be the only one of importance . The ratio of transition probabilities for successive orders of either electric or magnetic multipoles of ...
