Abstract The spin Hamiltonian parameters [zero-field splittings (ZFSs) b 2 0 , b 2 2 , b 4 0 , b 4 4 , b 6 0 , b 6 4 and the g factors] for the orthorhombic Gd 3+ center in YBa 2Cu 3O 6+ x are theoretically investigated from the superposition model formulas for the ZFSs and the approximation formula of the g factors including admixture of the ground 8S 7/2 and the excited 6L 7/2 (L = P, D, F, G) states via the spin–orbit coupling interactions, respectively. The large anisotropy of the g factors in the ( a, b) plane, originated from the anisotropy of spin susceptibility, is illustrated by the effective spin–orbit coupling coefficients ζ′ in the a and b principle axis directions. The calculated ZFSs and the g factors show reasonable agreement with the observed values.
