The Rare Earths or Lanthanides

  • Richard L. Carlin

Abstract

The paramagnetic properties of the rare earth ions have been investigated so extensively that a book could be written on the subject, never mind a chapter. This is due in large part to the many studies of the EPR spectra of the lanthanides when doped into diamagnetic hosts, and the attendant theoretical development in terms of crystal field theory. Many of the current ideas in magnetism have followed from such studies, especially with regard to relaxation phenomena.
