First-principles modelling of magnetic excitations in correlated materials

Mercredi 16 mai 14:00 - Duree : 1 heure
Lieu : ILL4 seminar room, first floor - 71 avenue des Martyrs - Grenoble

Orateur : Yaroslav KVASHNIN (Department of Physics and Astronomy, Uppsala University, SE-75120, Uppsala, Sweden)

In the past decades there has been an enormous progress in developing the realistic electronic structure theory for strongly correlated systems. Most of the modern first-principles studies are based on a combination of density functional theory and dynamical mean field theory (DFT+DMFT) [1]. Within this approach, the DFT is used as a starting point for more sophisticated DMFT calculations for a selected subset of “correlated” orbitals. The approach has proven to be extremely successful and is commonly employed to model the electronic structure of a wide range of d- and f-based correlated materials. In my talk I will show various applications of DFT+DMFT with an emphasis on magnetic properties.

Magnon excitations are non-local and are therefore not directly accessible within DMFT. Thus we have to employ a so-called two-step approach. We first map the system on a Heisenberg model and extract the effective exchange parameters Jij’s from DFT+DMFT, following Ref.[2]. Then the atomistic spin dynamics simulations are employed to simulate magnon spectra and predict the magnetic ordering temperatures [3]. I will demonstrate how such a combined approach can successfully predict properties of different types of materials from transition metal oxides to rare-earth metals.

The Jij’s in real materials have a complicated nature and depend on how the correlation effects are taken into account [4]. I will show how the decomposition of the exchange parameters in terms of their orbital contributions can provide a useful insight into the essence of magnetism in a material. In particular, we found an intrinsic competition between ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic interactions between different orbitals in elemental Mn and Fe [5]. Moreover, I will demonstrate that iron is a unique example where one can even distinguish RKKY, double- and super-exchange contributions to the magnetic couplings [6].
