Radial integrals for the magnetic form factor of the 5d electrons of rare earth elements.

Abstract

The radial integrals <j(L)>, where L = 0, 2, 4, for several electronic configurations of the 5d electrons of rare earth elements are calculated using radial wavefunctions from the Hartree-Fock relativistic method in the Cowan program. Gaussian analytical expressions with four exponential terms are fitted to the values for rare earth elements and the fitted coefficients are tabulated. The tables can be used to interpret the form factor measurements for rare earth metals. Using the radial integrals of Ce 4f and 5d electrons, the experimental measurement of the magnetic form factor of CePd(3) is investigated.
