Effects of QED and Beyond from the Atomic Binding Energy
Atomic binding energies are calculated at utmost precision. A report on the current status of Lamb-shift predictions for hydrogenlike ions, including all quantum electrodynamical corrections to first and second order in the fine structure constant α is presented. All relevant nuclear effects are taken into account. High-precision calculations for the Lamb shift in hydrogen are presented. The hyperfine structure splitting and the g factor of a bound electron in the strong electromagnetic field of a heavy nucleus is considered. Special emphasis is also put on parity violation effects in atomic systems. For all systems possible investigations beyond precision tests of quantum electrodynamics are considered.
