Zeeman spectroscopy is used to demonstrate that phenomenological crystal-field parameters determined for the two C1 point-group symmetry sites in Er3+:Y2SiO5 may be transferred to other ions. The two crystallographic six-and seven-coordinate substitutional sites may be distinguished by comparing the spectra with crystal-field calculations.

A systematic analysis of the spectra of the lanthanides doped into single crystal LaF3
The optical spectra of the lanthanides doped into single crystal LaF3 have been interpreted in terms of transitions within 4f N configurations. Energy matrices combining free‐ion terms with a crystal
Energy levels of the laser active Er3+ ion in each of the two crystallographic sites of yttrium orthosilicate
There are two non-equivalent sites of yttrium in the lattice of Y2SiO5. Both of them may be occupied substitutionally by Er3+, resulting in a laser active material. We measured absorption spectra of
Electron paramagnetic resonance enhanced crystal field analysis for low point-group symmetry systems: C2v sites in Sm3+:CaF2/SrF2.
Inclusion of the EPR data allowed us to determine unique crystal-field parameters that provide information about the geometry of the sites and the nature of the interactions between the Sm dopant and the alkaline earth co-dopant.
Spectroscopic distinctions between two types of Ce(3+) ions in X2-Y2SiO5: a theoretical investigation.
The structural and spectroscopic properties for the two types of Ce(3+) ions in X2-YSO are distinguished in terms of the calculated local atomic structures, 4f → 5d transition energies, and spectral parameters.

High-resolution spectroscopy and novel crystal-field methods for rare-earth based quantum information processing
A novel crystal-field fitting method was developed to allow an accurate analysis of the C1 point-group symmetry sites of Y2SiO5, which revealed ground-state hyperfine level storage with a lifetime of 1.6 ± 0.4 seconds for the I15/2Z1 → F9/2D1 transition.
