  • Magnetic Ions in Crystalsby K. W. Stevens

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 42.00

    There have been many demonstrations, particularly for magnetic impurity ions in crystals, that spin-Hamiltonians are able to account for a wide range of experimental results in terms of much smaller numbers of parameters. Yet they were originally derived from crystal field theory, which contains a logical flaw; electrons on the magnetic ions are distinguished... more...
