The static dipole (α1) and quadrupole (α2) polarizabilities (in au) for the ground states of the alkali and alkaline-earth atoms
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Table 1. The static dipole (α1) and quadrupole (α2) polarizabilities (in au) for the ground states of the alkali and alkaline-earth atoms. A recent review summarizes static dipole polarizabilities calculations and experiments .
Dispersion coefficients between the alkali metal atoms (Li–Rb) and alkaline-earth metal atoms (Be–Sr) are evaluated using matrix elements computed from frozen core configuration interaction calculations. Besides dispersion coefficients with both atoms in their respective ground states, dispersion coefficients are also given for the case where one atom is in its ground state and the other atom is in a low-lying excited state.
