Abstract

The relationship between high order J‐multiplet splitting moments and crystal field invariants is investigated. Expressions for corrections due to crystal field intermultiplet coupling are obtained. The formalism is applied to determine the crystal field parameters of lanthanide ions in cubic sites from ground multiplet energies alone, without fitting energy levels.
