Metal ion - nuclear interactions in cadmium fluoride F<sub>2</sub> as studied using paramagnetic resonance techniques
Electron Paramagnetic Resonance spectra of single crystals of Cd F 2 containing Mn2+ and Co2+ as paramagnetic impurities were investigated at temperatures of 293°K, 77°K and 4°K.
The Mn2+ hyperfine coupling constant and the F - ion superhyperfine constant obtained from this work were in very good agreement with other work.
The Co2+ spectra contained two resonance lines. The high field line in the neighborhood of g = 2 is successfully explained. The lower field Co2+ line is partially understood in terms of a combination of crystal field splitting with spin-orbit splittings.
