    When a photon of the right energy interacts with a free La atom subjected to an external magnetic field, energy transitions are induced.
    Because this energy is in the order of magnitude of meV, the transitions take place between electronic levels, meanwhile the nuclear level I keeps constant. Then, what is happening in the atom when this transitions take place are changes in the electron cloud. Changes in mj values makes the total angular momentum to change, and of course also the magnetic moment of the atom.
