In this paper, the crystal-field energy levels, the EPR g factors g, g⊥of Yb3+and hyperfine structure constants A, A⊥of171Yb3+and173Yb3+isotopes in CsCdBr3crystal are calculated from the crystal-field theory. The calculated results (seven energy levels and six EPR parameters) are in reasonable agreement with the observed values. In the calculation, we find that Yb3+ion does not occupy the exact Cd2+site, but is shifted from the center of bromine octahedron by a distance ΔZ ≈ 0.184 along C3axis. The results are discussed. © 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
