We present a systematic 57Fe-Mössbauer study on highly diluted Fe centers in Li2(Li1−xFex)N single-crystals as a function of temperature and magnetic field applied transverse and longitudinal with respect to the single-ion anisotropy axis. Below 30 K the Fe centers exhibit a giant magnetic hyperfine field of BA=70.25(2) T parallel to the axis of strongest electric field gradient Vzz=−154.0(1) V/Å2. Fluctuations of the magnetic hyperfine field are observed between 50 K and 300 K and described by the Blume two-level relaxation model. An Arrhenius analysis yields a single thermal activation barrier of ĒA=570(6) K. Mössbauer spectroscopy studies with applied transverse magnetic fields up to 5 T reveal a large increase of the fluctuation rate by more than one order of magnitude. The experimental observations are qualitatively reproduced by a single-ion effective spin Hamiltonian analysis assuming a Fe1+ d7 charge state with unquenched orbital moment and a J=7/2 ground state.
