    lowest level 2D:
    2 = 2S+1=> S = 1/2
    D level => L = 2
    lowest level => J = 3/2
    g_J factor is 0.8

    Highest level 2D:
    S = 1/2, L = 2, J = 5/2
    g_J factor is 1.2

    We indeed have 5/2=|L+S| >= J >= |L-S|=3/2

    When inside lanthanum metal:
    The ground state is then 1S0 (source https://www.radiochemistry.org/periodictable/la_series/L8.html), so L = 0, S = 0 and therefore J=0, so gJ = 0 too.
