Calculation of higher-order two-loop corrections is now a limiting factor in development of the bound state QED theory of the Lamb shift in the hydrogen atom and in precision determination of the Rydberg constant. Progress in the study of light hydrogen-like ions of helium and nitrogen can be helpful to investigate these uncalculated terms experimentally. To do that it is necessary to develop a theory of such ions. We present here a theoretical calculation for low energy levels of helium and… 

Theory of the n = 2 levels in muonic helium-3 ions

Abstract The present knowledge of Lamb shift, fine-, and hyperfine structure of the 2S and 2P states in muonic helium-3 ions is reviewed in anticipation of the results of a first measurement of

The Lamb shift of the muonic helium-3 ion and the helion charge radius

This thesis reports on the first ever measurement of several Lamb shift transitions in the muonic helium-3 ion and on the hitherto most precise extraction of its nuclear charge radius. The
