Title:
Spin Polarization Inversion at Benzene-Absorbed Fe4N Surface
Authors:
Zhang, Qian; Mi, Wenbo; Wang, Xiaocha; Wang, Xuhui
Abstract:
We report a first-principle study on electronic structure and simulation of the spin-polarized scanning tunneling microscopy graphic of a benzene/Fe4N interface. Fe4N is a compound ferromagnet suitable for many spintronic applications. We found that, depending on the particular termination schemes and interface configurations, the spin polarization on the benzene surface shows a rich variety of properties ranging from cosine-type oscillation to polarization inversion. Spin-polarization inversion above benzene is resulting from the hybridizations between C pz and the out-of-plane d orbitals of Fe atom.
