    spin-orbit interaction



    Examples/ definitions with source references
    "spin-orbit coupling" =
    The interaction of the electron spin magnetic moment with the magnetic
    moment due to the orbital motion of the electron. One consequence of
    spin-orbit coupling is the mixing of zero-order states of different multiplicity.
    This effect may result in fine structure called spin-orbit splitting.
