13 Tanabe Sugano Diagrams - MIT

Lecture 4 May 11: Tanabe Sugano Diagrams A Tanabe-Sugano (TS) diagram plots the energy dependence of the various ligand field states (or terms) with field strength. The strength of the ligand field is defined by Dq, which is related to the octahedral crystal field splitting by 10Dq = ∆o. The energy of the state is given by E.
