Crystal Field Splittings of NdN

    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


    The crystal field levels of the Nd (J=9/2) ion in NdN have been determined by inelastic neutron scattering. The crystal field parameters obtained by a least-squares fit to the spectra at 80K are: B4=-0.042+or-0.002K and B6=-0.00042+or-0.00002K. This result contrasts with the point charge model used to interpret previous measurements of other rare earth pnictides
