Single-ion properties of the S = 1/2 XY antiferromagnetic pyrochlores, NaA’Co2F7 (A’ = Ca2+, Sr2+)

Our paper on the single ion properties of Cobalt-based S=1/2 pyrochlores NaCaCo2F7 and NaSrCo2F7 was published in PRB as an editors suggestion.  Based on inelastic neutron scattering, from which we can extract the single ion angular momentum wavefunctions and thus
