Abstract : Attempts are made to reassign symmetries to the (sup 3)H(sub 6) and (sup 3)H(sub 5) levels of Tm(3+):YVO4 reported by Knoll in order to obtain a better fit between theory and experiment. Based essentially on Knoll's assignments, Wortman, Leavitt and Morrison have made an elaborate analysis of the full f12 configuration, but could obtain a fit to only 14/cm. The present analysis does not improve on the results of Wortman et al, indicating that further experimental data are needed. (Author)
