A powerful technique to look at even $d$-$d$ transitions with well defined selection rules \cite{Haverkort:​2007bv,​ vanVeenendaal:​2008kv,​ Hiraoka:​2011cq},​ but can also be used to determine orbital occupations of rare-earth ions that are fundamentally not possible to determine using dipolar spectroscopy \cite{Willers:​2012bz}.

In order to make the plots you need to download the experimental data. You can download them in a zip file here {{ :​documentation:​tutorials:​nio_crystal_field:​nio_data.zip |}}. Please unpack this file and make sure to have the folders NiO_Experiment and NiO_Radial in the same folder as you do the calculations. And as always, if used in a publication,​ please cite the original papers that published the data. ### ###
