Solid State Physics


Electric field gradient tensors at the bridging chlorine sites in niobium pentachloride dimer have been evaluated using point-charge model with de Wette’s planewise summation method for rapid convergence of the lattice sums. The results are discussed based on the experimental results and the existing theory on dimeric molecules.
