In this Letter, we describe variable-temperature variable-field magnetic circular photoluminescence (VTVH-MCPL) spectroscopy as a complementary technique to absorption-based magnetic circular dichroism. A paramagnetic model system, Au25SC8H918, is chosen to demonstrate the information content that is obtained from VTVH-MCPL. Specifically, the methods and analyses for the determination of electronic Landé g-factors, zero-field energy splittings, and relative A-, B-, and C-term contributions to the MCPL response are detailed. The determination of these system properties from photoluminescence data suggests the feasibility of point-source-based super-resolution magneto-optical microscopy.
