|Abstract||We consider the spin correlation functions for rare-earth compounds in their paramagnetic state with the aim to understand the temperature dependence of the quasi-elastic and crystal-field linewidths and the spin-lattice relaxation rates measured by the muon-spin-relaxation technique. Both the conduction electron and phonon relaxation mechanisms are treated. First the single-ion dynamics is described using an iterative method introduced by P. M. Richards. Then the case of a regular lattice of rare-earth ions is studied using the random-phase approximation (RPA). Applications to simple crystal-field level schemes are given with particular emphasis on the phonon relaxation mechanism. This allows us to investigate the domain of validity of our results. In order to account for data recorded on insulators, a phenomelogical modification is suggested.|
|Learning Resource Type||Article|
National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
