Abstract [en]

Heusler compounds are exciting materials for future spintronics applications because they display a wide range of tunable electronic and magnetic interactions. Here, we use a femtosecond laser to directly transfer spin polarization from one element to another in a half-metallic Heusler material, Co2MnGe. This spin transfer initiates as soon as light is incident on the material, demonstrating spatial transfer of angular momentum between neighboring atomic sites on time scales < 10 fs. Using ultrafast high harmonic pulses to simultaneously and independently probe the magnetic state of two elements during laser excitation, we find that the magnetization of Co is enhanced, while that of Mn rapidly quenches. Density functional theory calculations show that the optical excitation directly transfers spin from one magnetic sublattice to another through preferred spin-polarized excitation pathways. This direct manipulation of spins via light provides a path toward spintronic devices that can operate on few-femtosecond or faster time scales.

Abstract [en]

One of the primary goals for monolayer device fabrications and an ideal model of graphene as an atomic thin “canvas” is one that permits semiconducting/insulating lateral nanopatterns to be freely and directly drawn on the semimetallic graphene surface. This work demonstrates a reversible electron-beam-activated technique that allows direct writing of semiconducting/insulating fluorographene lateral nanopatterns with tunable bandgaps on the graphene surface with a resolution down to 9–15 nm. This approach overcomes the conventional limit of semiconducting C4F in the single-sided fluorination of supported graphene and achieves insulating C2F. Moreover, applying this technique on bilayer graphene demonstrates for the first time a new type of rectangular moiré pattern arising from the generated C2F boat/graphene superlattice. This novel technique constitutes a new approach to fabricating graphene-based flexible and transparent electronic nanodevices with the CxF channels utilized as semiconducting or insulating counterparts, and also opens a route toward the tailoring and engineering of electronic properties of such materials in addition to the dominating triangular moiré patterns from a graphene/hBN system.

Abstract [en]

In magnetic trilayer systems, spin pumping is generally addressed as a reciprocal mechanism characterized by one unique spin-mixing conductance common to both interfaces. However, this assumption is questionable in cases where different types of interfaces are present. Here, we present a general theory for analyzing spin pumping in cases with more than one unique interface and where the magnetic coupling is allowed to be noncollinear. The theory is applied to analyze layer-resolved ferromagnetic resonance experiments on the trilayer system Ni80Fe20/Ru/Fe49Co49V2 where the Ru spacer thickness is varied to tune the indirect exchange coupling. It is demonstrated that the equation of motion of macrospins driven by spin pumping need to be modified in case of noncollinear coupling. Our analysis also shows that the spin pumping in trilayer systems with dissimilar magnetic layers, in general, is nonreciprocal.

Abstract [en]

A methodology is developed to compute photoionization cross sections beyond the electric dipole approximation from response theory, using Gaussian type orbitals and plane waves for the initial and final states, respectively. The methodology is applied to compute photoionization cross sections of atoms and ions from the first four rows of the periodic table. Analyzing the error due to the plane wave description of the photoelectron, we find kinetic energy and concomitant photon energy thresholds above which the plane wave approximation becomes applicable. The correction introduced by going beyond the electric dipole approximation increases with photon energy and depends on the spatial extension of the initial state. In general, the corrections are below 10% for most elements, at a photon energy reaching up to 12 keV.

Abstract [en]

Ceramic samples of the multiferroic perovskite Pb(Fe1-xScx)(2/3)W1/3O3 with 0 <= x <= 0.4 have been synthesized using a conventional solid-state reaction method, and investigated experimentally and theoretically using first-principle calculations. Rietveld analyses of joint synchrotron X-ray and neutron diffraction patterns show the formation of a pure crystalline phase with cubic (Fm3(_)m) structure with partial ordering in the B-sites. The replacement of Fe by Sc leads to the increase of the cation order between the B and B '' sites. As the non-magnetic Sc3+ ions replace the magnetic Fe3+ cations, the antiferromagnetic state of PbFe2/3W1/3O3 is turned into a ferrimagnetic state reflecting the different magnitude of the magnetic moments on the B ' and B '' sites. The materials remain ferroelectric relaxors with increasing Sc content. Results from experiments on annealed and quenched samples show that the cooling rate after high temperature annealing controls the degree of cationic order in Pb(Fe1-xScx)(2/3)W1/3O3 and possibly also in the undoped PbFe2/3W1/3O3.

Abstract [en]

We explore the effects of electron doping in lanthanum ferrite, LaFeO3 by doping Mo at the Fe sites. Based on magnetic, transport, scanning tunneling spectroscopy, and x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy measurements, we find that the large gap, charge-transfer, antiferromagnetic (AFM) insulator LaFeO3 becomes a small gap AFM band insulator at low Mo doping. With increasing doping concentration, Mo states, which appear around the Fermi level, is broadened and become gapless at a critical doping of 20%. Using a combination of calculations based on density functional theory plus Hubbard U (DFT+U) and x-ray absorption spectroscopy measurements, we find that the system shows charge disproportionation (CD) in Fe ions at 25% Mo doping, where two distinct Fe sites, having Fe2+ and Fe3+ nominal charge states appear. A local breathing-type lattice distortion induces the charge disproportionation at the Fe site without destroying the antiferromagnetic order. Our combined experimental and theoretical investigations establish that the Fe states form a CD antiferromagnet at 25% Mo doping, which remains insulating, while the appearance of Mo states around the Fermi level is showing an indication towards the insulator-metal transition.

Abstract [en]

This paper describes the open Novamag database that has been developed for the design of novel Rare-Earth free/lean permanent magnets. Its main features as software technologies, friendly graphical user interface, advanced search mode, plotting tool and available data are explained in detail. Following the philosophy and standards of Materials Genome Initiative, it contains significant results of novel magnetic phases with high magnetocrystalline anisotropy obtained by three computational high-throughput screening approaches based on a crystal structure prediction method using an Adaptive Genetic Algorithm, tetragonally distortion of cubic phases and tuning known phases by doping. Additionally, it also includes theoretical and experimental data about fundamental magnetic material properties such as magnetic moments, magnetocrystalline anisotropy energy, exchange parameters, Curie temperature, domain wall width, exchange stiffness, coercivity and maximum energy product, that can be used in the study and design of new promising high-performance Rare-Earth free/lean permanent magnets. The results therein contained might provide some insights into the ongoing debate about the theoretical performance limits beyond Rare-Earth based magnets. Finally, some general strategies are discussed to design possible experimental routes for exploring most promising theoretical novel materials found in the database.

Abstract [en]

The thermodynamic ordering transformation of tetragonal FeNi system is investigated by the Exact Muffin-Tin Orbitals (EMTO) method. The tetragonal distortion of the unit cell is taken into account and the free energy is calculated as a function of long-range order and includes the configurational, vibrational, electronic and magnetic contributions. We find that both configurational and vibrational effects are important and that the vibrational effect lowers the predicted transformation temperature by about 480 K compared to the value obtained merely from the configurational free energy. The predicted temperature is in excellent agreement with the experimental value when all contributions are taken into account. We also perform spin dynamics calculations for the magnetic transition temperature and find it to be in agreement with the experiments. The present research opens new opportunities for quantum-mechanical engineering of the chemical and magnetic ordering in tetrataenite.

Abstract [en]

We investigated experimentally and computationally the concentration dependence of the electronic specific heat coefficient gamma in the Y(Fe1-xCox)(2) pseudobinary Laves phase system. The experimentally observed maximum in gamma(x) around the magnetic phase transition was interpreted within the local density approximation combined with the virtual crystal approximation. To explain the formation of the observed maximum, we analyzed theoretically the dependence of the magnetic energy, magnetic moments, densities of states, and Fermi surfaces on the Co concentration. Furthermore, we carried out the calculations of the density of states (DOS) at the Fermi level as a function of fixed spin moment. The calculated Co concentration at which gamma takes the maximum value (x(max-LDA-VCA) = 0.91) stays in good agreement with the measured value (x(max-expt) = 0.925). We conclude that the observed maximum in gamma(x) results from the presence of the sharp DOS peak in the vicinity of the Fermi level.
