Static Crystal Field for Orthohydrogen Impurities in Parahydrogen

  • J. C. Raich

Ortho-para mixtures of solid hydrogen show a number of unique and interesting properties which have been the subject of numerous investigations during the past decade or so. Among these are measurements of the energy level Splitting of the triply degenerate J = 1 rotational State of dilute mixtures of orthohydrogen in solid parahydrogen. In the environment of neighboring molecules with rotational quantum number J = 0, the triply degenerate J = 1 State is split. This Splitting is observed in the NMR spectrum and depends on the ortho hydrogen concentration x [1–3].
