Abstract

An upper limit for the deuteron and proton electric dipole mo- ment (edm) are obtained using spectroscopic data. Following Sternheimer, the corrections to the deuterium energy levels due to the supposed deuteron electric dipole moment are obtained using second- order perturbation theory. Equating these corrections to the maximum allowed by the appropriate agreement between the theoretic energy levels and experimental spectroscopic values gives an upper limit for the deuteron edm of 8.8 · 10E−16 e · cm. Updating similar calculations for hydrogen by Sternheimer gives an upper limit for the proton edm of 1·10E14 e·cm.
