The mechanism behind fast intersystem crossing in transition-metal complexes is shown to be a result of the dephasing of the photoexcited state to the phonon continuum of a different state with a significantly different transition metal-ligand distance. The coupling is a result of the spin-orbit interaction causing a change in the local moment. A recurrence(More)

In this paper, we examine the mean field electronic structure of the f − f Anderson lattice model in a slave boson approximation, which should be useful in understanding the physics of correlated metals with more than one f electron per site such as uranium-based heavy fermion superconductors. We find that the multiplet structure of the f ion acts to quench(More)
