The study of crystalline electric fields (CEF) in rare earth intermetallics is of interest for the understanding of the magnetic interaction in metals. The CEF depends on the particular form of the electrical potential in the metal and consequently it can provide knowledge of the electronic structure of a substance. Information about the symmetry and strength of the CEF can be obtained by determining the splitting of the ground state J-multiplet of the 4f electrons into so-called crystal field levels.
