    • Abstract

       

      By calculating the optical spectrum band positions and EPR parameters (𝑔 factors, $g_{\parallel}$ , $g_{\perp}$ and zero-field splitting 𝐷) by diagonalizing the complete energy matrix of 3d8 ions in trigonal symmetry, the defect structure of Ni2+ centre in 𝛼-LiIO3 crystal is studied. It is found that to reach the good fits of optical and EPR data between calculation and experiment, the Ni2+ ion should shift by $\Delta z \approx 0.298$ Å along C3 -axis and the O2− ions between the Ni2+ ion and Li+ vacancy (V$_{Li}$) should be displaced away from the V$_{Li}$ by $\Delta x \approx 0.097$ Å because of the electrostatic interaction. The results are discussed.
