Asphericity of 4f-shells in their Hund's rule ground states

  • J. Sievers


The charge density of the 4f-shells of all trivalent rare earth ions is calculated for the eigenstates of a component of total angular momentum. The angular dependence of the charge distribution is plotted for all these states in order to visualize the asphericity of the 4f-shells.
