Abstract [en]

We present the results of first principles calculations for the magnetism of Rh adlayers on MgO(0 0 1), at three different adsorption sites and three different coverages, corresponding to 1, 1/2 and 1/8 monolayers. Finite magnetization is found in all cases except that of one Rh monolayer above the oxygen site, which is also the most stable. We examine how the magnetization changes as a function of the Rh–surface distance and relate this to changes in the real-space charge density and in the density of states (DOS) as the Rh adlayer interacts with the surface. We find that increasing either the Rh–Rh interaction strength or the Rh–surface interaction strength leads to reduced magnetization, while increasing the former drives a crossover from localized (atomic) to itinerant magnetism. Neither the magnetic transition itself, nor the localized-to-itinerant magnetism crossover, is found to be directly related to the formation of Rh–surface bonds. From a practical point of view, we predict that magnetism in the Rh–MgO(0 0 1) system is most likely to be found experimentally at reduced coverages and at low temperatures.
