Languages of publication
Electron paramagnetic resonance and magnetic susceptibility measurements were performed for two La₃Ga_{5.5}Ta_{0.5}O₁₄ single crystals doped with 1.96 at.% of Sm³⁺ ions and 3.8 at.% of Er³⁺ ions. Two magnetically inequivalent sites were found to be responsible for the electron paramagnetic resonance spectra of Sm³⁺ ions. Both sites reveal a low (at least C₂) symmetry with g_{x}~0.46, g_{y}~0.46 and g_{z}~0.52. The symmetry of isolated erbium ions is higher than C₂. From electron paramagnetic resonance and magnetic susceptibility experiments it results that the ground state of Er³⁺ ions is Γ⁶ or Γ⁷. Below 51 K electronic transitions within Γ⁶ doublets take place. Between 51 and 60 K, Γ⁶ to Γ⁷ transitions dominate, while above 60 K mainly transitions within Γ⁷ doublet are active.
