Energy spectrum of the molecular magnet

We present a theoretical analysis of the magnetic energy level spectrum of the molecular complex , which is an example of a “molecular magnet”. Using a Heisenberg exchange model, we investigate the energy spectrum and the deviations which result from the slight asymmetry of the cluster. We derive an analytical expression for the crystal field splitting of the ground state as a function of the anisotropy. Finally, we establish the existence of diabolical points in the magnetic-field spectrum and compare to predictions made by semiclassical and perturbation theory approaches, and investigate how the location of these points is affected by higher-order anisotropy terms.
