Title: Magnonic analog of the Edelstein effect in antiferromagnetic insulators

Abstract

Here we investigate the nonequilibrium spin polarization due to a temperature gradient in antiferromagnetic insulators, which is the magnonic analog of the inverse spin-galvanic effect of electrons. We derive a linear-response theory of a temperature-gradient-induced spin polarization for collinear and noncollinear antiferromagnets, which comprises both extrinsic and intrinsic contributions. We apply our theory to several noncentrosymmetric antiferromagnetic insulators, i.e., to a one-dimensional antiferromagnetic spin chain, a single layer of kagome noncollinear antiferromagnet, e.g., KFe 3 ( OH ) 6 ( SO 4 ) 2 , and a noncollinear breathing pyrochlore antiferromagnet, e.g., LiGaCr 4 O 8 . The shapes of our numerically evaluated response tensors agree with those implied by the magnetic symmetry. Furthermore, assuming a realistic temperature gradient of 10 K/mm , we find two-dimensional spin densities of up to ~ 10 6 / cm 2 and three-dimensional bulk spin densities of up to ~ 10 14 / cm 3 , encouraging an experimental detection
