Title: Magnetic Moment Enhancement for Mn7 Cluster on Graphene

Mn7 cluster on graphene with different structural motifs and magnetic orders are investigated systematically by first-principles calculations. The calculations show that Mn7 on graphene prefers a two-layer motif and exhibits a ferrimagnetic coupling. The magnetic moment of the Mn7 cluster increases from 5.0 μB at its free-standing state to about 6.0 μB upon adsorption on graphene. Mn7 cluster also induces about 0.3 μB of magnetic moment in the graphene layer, leading to an overall enhancement of 1.3 μB magnetic moment for Mn7 on graphene. Detail electron transfer and bonding analysis have been carried out to investigate the origin of the magnetic enhancement.
