Precessing magnetic moments

Magnetic moment L (green) precessing about magnetic field direction (blue)

Coupled magnetic moments L,S (red purple) precessing about J = L+S (blue)

Coupled magnetic moments J (blue) = L + S (red purple) precessing about magnetic field

Transition electric dipoles and quadrupole

s->p Dml = 0 transition dipole

s->p Dml = +1 transition dipole

s->p Dml = -1 transition dipole

s->d Dml = 0 transition quadrupole
