The spin-Hamiltonian parameters (g factors g, g and hyperfine structure constants A(A), A(A), A(B) and A(B), A(A) and A(B) belonging to isotopes 95Mo5+ and 97Mo5+) of Mo5+ ion at the tetragonally-compressed tetrahedral W6+ site in CaWO4 crystal are calculated from the high-order perturbation formulae based on the two-mechanism model, where besides the contributions to spin-Hamiltonian parameters due to the crystal-field mechanism concerning the crystal-field excited states in the extensively-applied crystal-field theory, those due to charge-transfer mechanism concerning charge-transfer excited states (which are omitted in crystal-field theory) are included. The calculated results are in reasonable agreement with the experimental values. The calculations show that for the high-valence state dn ions (e. g., Mo5+ considered) in crystals, the contributions due to charge-transfer mechanism should be taken into account in the studies of spin-Hamiltonian parameters. The local structure of Mo5+ center in CaWO4 crystal due to the impurity-induced local lattice relaxation is estimated from the calculations. The results are discussed.
