Abstract

We observe a hyperfine anomaly in the measurement of the hyperfine splitting of the 6S1/2 excited level in rubidium. We perform two step spectroscopy using the 5S1/2→5P1/2→6S1/2 excitation sequence. We measure the splitting of the 6S1/2 level and obtain for the magnetic dipole constants of 85Rb and 87Rb and , respectively. The hyperfine anomaly difference of comes from the Bohr Weisskopf effect: a correction to the point interaction between the finite nuclear magnetization and the electrons, and agrees with that obtained in the 5S1/2 ground state.
