Abstract

Neutron scattering has proved to be an effective probe of high-energy magnetic excitations. Recent measurements on AnO(2) (An = U, Np or Pu) performed using spallation source-based spectrometers have made important contributions to the understanding of the crystal field potential in such systems. The experimental results are consistent with a fairly constant potential across the series and suggest that the ground state wave functions may be expressed almost entirely within a single J-manifold.
