The case of an axial ligand field having D4 point symmetry, with OZ as 4-fold axis and the OX, OY axes as 2-fold axes, is considered. Irreducible tensor operators have been used to construct energy matrices of such a noncubic ligand field for the d3 electronic configuration in the 'strong-field' scheme |tn2(S1G1) em(S2G2) SGMs?>. These matrices have been used to analyse the absorption spectrum of trans-Cr(H2O)4F+2. © 1971.
