Abstract

Optical spectroscopy was used to obtain information on the energy and symmetry of the crystal-field (CF) levels within the 4f 2 configuration of Pr3+ in PrFe3(BO3) 4, along with changes in the frequencies and intensities of the f-f transition lines upon magnetic ordering (T N = 32K). Analysis of the experimental data yielded the values of the parameters for the CF and the anisotropic Pr3+-Fe3+ exchange-interaction Hamiltonians.
