Lorentz and CPT violation in the hydrogen spectrum    [PDF]

Gregory S. Adkins, Theodore J. Yoder
We have studied the effect of hypothetical violations of Lorentz and CPT symmetry by calculating the corrections to the energy levels of hydrogen induced by the Standard-Model Extension (SME). Hydrogen studies are interesting because the energy levels of hydrogen can be measured with great precision and the theory for hydrogen based on the Standard Model (SM) is well understood. We obtained corrections through order \alpha^2 times the SME parameters for all levels of hydrogen and applied them to determine the SME corrections to the transition frequency for the 2S-1S transition.
