In the semi-classical theory of the problem of interaction of radio-frequency (r.f.) field with electron or nuclear spin, the application of quantisation is restricted to the spin system only, the r.f. field being treated classically. In this paper, a purely quantum approach is discussed for a system with spin > 1/2 using a Glauber vector to describe coherent excitations of the r.f. field. It is illustrated here for the case of spin 3/2. One finds that this quantum approach contains the classical one.

In Lytle’s theory for the extended fine structure in x-ray absorption spectra, the potential at the boundary of the ‘equivalent sphere’ around the absorbing atom, having volume equal to that of the Wigner-Seitz cell is considered to be infinite. It has been observed that Lytle’s theory is applicable only in the case of metals and metallic systems. In the present paper the extended fine structure associated with the LIII absorption spectra of some systems of ytterbium is interpreted on the basis of Lytle’s model, modified by using a finite potential instead of an infinite one at the boundary of the equivalent sphere. The values of this potential are estimated for eight systems of ytterbium. It has been shown that there exists a correlation between the potentials and covalency of the compounds.
