Studies of the hyperfine anomaly has found a renewed interest with the recent development of techniques to study the properties of long chains of unstable nuclei. By using the hyperfine structure for determining the nuclear magnetic dipole moments, the hyperfine anomaly puts a limit to the accuracy. In this paper, the differential Breit–Rosenthal effect is calculated for the 6s6p3P1,2 states in 199Hg as a function of the change in nuclear radii, using the MCDHF code, GRASP2018. The differential Breit–Rosenthal effect was found to be of the order of 0.1%fm−2, in most cases much less than the Bohr-Weisskopf effect. The results also indicate that large calculations might not be necessary, with the present accuracy of the experimental values for the hyperfine anomaly.
