Crystal-field transition in PuO(2)
A single peak at 123 meV has been found in the neutron inelastic scattering spectrum of PuO(2) measured on the PHAROS chopper spectrometer at Los Alamos neutron scattering center (LANSCE). This is ascribed to the Gamma (1) to Gamma (4) transition of the ground-state crystal-field multiplet. The peak is broadened beyond the instrumental resolution. A short discussion is presented on how this observation complements our understanding of the actinide oxides.
