At very low temperatures, below the Neel point TN the optical spectra of the antiferromagnetic manganese fluoride systems exhibit fine structures which are related to both electronic and magnetic collective excitations. The experimental conditions, the optical pumping characteristics, the lattice temperature, the application of external factors such as an uniaxial stress or a magnetic field, have been used extensively in the way of identifying these transitions. More recently, these experimental conditions have been found to be of great interest in the study of dynamical properties.
