Abstract [en]

It is demonstrated that the magnetic interactions can be drastically different for nanosized systems compared to those of bulk or surfaces. Using a real-space formalism we have developed a method to calculate noncollinear magnetization structures and hence exchange interactions. Our results for magnetic Mn clusters supported on a Cu(111) surface show that the magnetic ordering as a rule is noncollinear and cannot always be described by using a simple Heisenberg Hamiltonian. We argue that the use of ab initio calculations allowing for noncollinear coupling between atomic spins constitutes an efficient and reliable way of analyzing nanosized magnets.
