The Significance of Crystal-Field Parameters for the quartet I term of Nd(+3) in CaWO4.

Pagination or Media Count:
Previously reported analyses of the quartet I term of Nd3 in CaWO4 are reexamined to determine uncertainties in the reported crystal-field parameters. B20 is kept fixed at values ranging from 250 to 800cm, and the other Bkm are varied to obtain a best fit between theoretical and experimental energy levels for the particular value of B20.
