On the theory of superconductors containing magnetic impurities: Crystalline field effects

  • Joachim Keller
  • Peter Fulde


We extend to finite concentrations a previous calculation of crystalline field effects in superconductors containing rare-earth impurities. The computations, which have to be done numerically, apply to non-Kramers ions as well as Kramers ions. A comparison between theory and available experimental data is made.
