Re: CCL:electron state of LaF?



 I know the configuration (PI)(PI) can produce 3(Sigma)^(+), 3(Sigma)^(-),
 
    ^^^^
 
 3(Delta).
 
 ...for a delta state, you have to put two electrons in a l_z=2 orbital. Two
 electrons in one orbital, that makes a singlet for me. With the number of alpha
 electrons exceeding the number of beta electrons by 2, you should look for the
 triplets only --- 3(Sigma)^(-) ----.
