Energetics and zero-field-splitting in triplet states of C70

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Triplet excited states of the C70 molecule possessing D5h symmetry are described by a specific semiempirical one-electronper-site model. The geometries for each state are optimized. Jahn-Teller distortions are evaluated when the corresponding vertical excitations are degenerate. Zero-field-splitting (ZFS) parameters are computed.
