Optically excited mercury resonance radiation was used as a light source to provide the sharpest possible hyperfine structure lines of Hg. 2537. This light source was placed in magnetic fields varying from zero to 2000 gauss. A lummer plate and a camera with a special quartz lens was used to secure the Zeeman hyperfine structure patterns. The patterns were analyzed by the newly installed micro photometer of the State University of Iowa. The measurements and theoretical interpretations are given.
