Based on crystal- and ligand-field theory, double-spin-orbital coupling approach was used to analyze the crystal-field energy levels and spin-Hamiltonian parameters of Ni2+ ion at trigonal site in CdBr2. The local lattice distortion (Δ R and τNi2+) is estimated from the crystal field parameters; the crystal field energy Hamiltonian was diagonalized in the full basis consisting of 45 wave functions of the Ni2+ ion. Results of calculations are in good agreement with experimental data. The reasonableness of the theoretical results is discussed.
