In this paper, the energy level splitting in Ti3+: A12O3 crystal is calculated with crystal field theory considering the SO coupling. Our result is in agreement with the Far infrared spectra which reflects the splitting of the ground state2T2g. Our calculation does not consider the dynamic Jahn-Teller effect reported by Macfarlane, who thought that for both ground and excited state's splitting, the dynamic JT effect plays a major role in determining those energies. Our calculation shows that… CONTINUE READING
