Abstract:Recently Professor P. Meijer of The Catholic University of America pointed out an error in the matrix elements in the crystalline electric field (CEF) computer program which we developed to calculate the CEF splitting for H0 3 • in HoCI 3 • 6H 2 0 and Tm 3 • in TmCl a • 6H 2 0. The error affects only the energy levels of the manifolds with J = 4, 5, and 8. We are grateful to Professor Meijer f~r providing us with a copy of his CEF program which allowed us to correct our previous calculations.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
