A Scalar Crystal Field Strength Parameter for Rare-Earth Ions: Meaning and Application to Energy Transfer

  • F. Auzel
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 114)


A scalar crystal field parameter is first introduced experimentally and shown to rule a special energy transfer between Nd + ions. Its general theoretical meaning is then discussed demonstrating its extension for any ions and j-terms as well as its limitations.
