Francium is a candidate for atomic parity non-conservation (PNC) experiments. Its simple atomic structure has been the subject of extensive experimental research facilitated by the ability to trap and cool significant numbers of atoms. The studies include the location of energy levels, their hyperfine splittings and their lifetime. All of these levels are close to the ground state. The results show a remarkable agreement with calculated ab initio properties to a degree that is comparable with… Expand
