Conference paper


The tunneling mechanisms of spin-lattice relaxation (SLR) of paramagnetic impurities with the orientational degeneracy are. investigated. Namely, phonon-induced tunneling (PIT) and ion-lattice relaxation with the participation of mixed spin-orientational and spin-tunneling states correspondingly, spin-orbit PIT and spin-orbit tunneling-controlled process.
