Abstract

The excited-state nuclear Zeeman effect and quadratic-electronic Zeeman effect were studied in Pr3+:LaF3 using laser-induced hole burning. Hole burning in an external magnetic field gave values for the excited-state enhanced nuclear g tensor of gxβ/h = 2.2, gyβ/h = 1.9, and gzβ/h = 3.6 kHz/G. By applying the field after hole burning, quadratic-electronic Zeeman coefficients as small as 0.1 Hz/G2 were measured. The hyperfine coupling constant in the excited lD2 level was found to be AJ = 600 MHz.
