Abstract

Two new trends associated with spin-orbit effects in a non-central-force field are evident in recent data for F centers: (1) an inverse power-law dependence of spin-orbit splitting on the lattice parameter of the host crystal and (2) a direct dependence of the splitting on the size of the host-lattice ions. These features may be summarized by a simple semiempirical formula closely related to the Mollwo-Ivey relation for the absorption energy.
