  • Here we show that the 2.80(8){mu}{sub B} Fe{sup -1} block antiferromagnetic order of BaFe{sub 2}Se{sub 3} transforms into stripe antiferromagnetic order in KFe{sub 2}Se{sub 3} with a decrease in moment to 2.1(1){mu}{sub B} Fe{sup -1}. This reduction is larger than expected from the change in electron count from Ba{sup 2+} to K{sup +}, and occurs with the loss of the displacements of Fe atoms from ideal positions in the ladders, as found by neutron pair distribution function analysis. Intermediate compositions remain insulating, and magnetic susceptibility measurements show a suppression of magnetic order and probable formation of a spin glass. Together,more » these results imply an orbital-dependent selection of magnetic versus bonded behavior, driven by relative bandwidths and fillings.« less
  • The electronic structure and magnetism of Ir 5d{sup 5} states in nonmetallic, weakly ferromagnetic BaIrO{sub 3} are probed with x-ray absorption techniques. Contrary to expectation, the Ir 5d orbital moment is found to be {approx}1.5 times larger than the spin moment. This unusual, atomiclike nature of the 5d moment is driven by a strong spin-orbit interaction in heavy Ir ions, as confirmed by the nonstatistical large branching ratio at Ir L{sub 2,3} absorption edges. As a consequence, orbital interactions cannot be neglected when addressing the nature of magnetic ordering in BaIrO{sub 3}. The local moment behavior persists even as themore » metallic-paramagnetic phase boundary is approached with Sr doping or applied pressure.« less
  • We have determined theoretically both the orbital and the spin contribution to the magnetic moment on the (001) surfaces of fcc Mn, bcc and fcc Fe, hcp Co, and fcc Ni. We used a surface geometry that corresponds to the bulk crystal structure (except for Mn) with no relaxation of the surface. In addition to enhanced spin moments at the surface we find that the orbital moment for surface states is greatly enhanced (sometimes by more than 100%). We also present calculations for different spin configurations in fcc Fe, and we find that two competing spin configurations exists. fcc Mnmore » is found to have a surface spin moment slightly larger than the surface moment of bcc Fe. Detailed information from the calculations is presented, i.e., density of states, charge-density contour plots, and orbital-projected spin moments.« less
  • We present self-consistent linear muffin-tin orbitals calculations for the cubic systems bcc Fe ({alpha}-Fe), YFe{sub 2}, FeAl, and Fe{sub 3}Al, and the hexagonal compounds ThFe{sub 5} and Fe{sub 2}P. The spin-polarized calculations include the spin-orbit coupling and both the spin and orbital moments are reported. A simple model calculation is presented for {alpha}-Fe and from this it is concluded that the low orbital moments in the presently investigated 3{ital d} systems can be understood from the symmetry-adapted wave functions of the crystal.
