摘要: 通过基于密度泛函理论的第一原理计算, 优化了纤锌矿结构的化合物TmZn15S16 (Tm=V, Cr, Mn)的几何结构, 并研究了它们的磁学性能. 结果表明: TmZn15S16 均为典型的半金属铁磁体, 它们的超胞磁矩分别为3.0099μB, 3.9977μB和5.0092μB; 这些磁矩主要来源于被掺入的过渡元素; CrZn15S16的半金属特性比VZn15S16和MnZn15S16 更稳定; 这些半金属铁磁体的半金属带隙均比较宽, 表明它们可能具有较高的居里温度;TmZn15S16中杂质过渡离子的电子结构分别为V: eg2t2g1↑, Cr: eg2t2g2↑和Mn: eg2t2g3↑.

Abstract: By performing first-principles calculations based on the density functional theory we optimized the geometric structures of TmZn15S16 (Tm=V, Cr, Mn) and determined their magnetic properties. TmZn15S16 are typical half-metallic ferromagnets. The supercell magnetic moments of VZn15S16, CrZn15S16, and MnZn15S16 are 3.0099μB, 3.9977μB, and 5.0092μB, respectively, and these arise mainly from the Tm ions. The half-metallicity of CrZn15S16 is more stable than that of VZn15S16 and MnZn15S16. These half-metallic ferromagnets have wide spin gaps. Therefore, high Curie temperatures are possible. The electronic structures of the V, Cr, and Mn ions are eg2t2g1↑, eg2t2g2↑, and eg2t2g3↑, respectively.
