Linewidth of Crystal Field Excitations in Metallic Rare Earth Systems

  • K. W. Becker

Abstract

In a series of papers1–3 P. Fulde and we at Regensburg have studied theoretically the influence of conduction electrons on the linewidth of elastic and inelastic crystalline electric field (CEF) transitions of rare earth (RE) alloys and compounds. The theory has been applied to explain the temperature dependence of the linewidth for dilute alloys4 and also the temperature dependence of the quasi-elastic line close to the ferromagnetic transition in the magnetic compound Pr3T1. 5
