Title: The electron correlation effect on the magnetic properties of quasi-one dimensionalmaterials on the base of graphitic nanoclusters with embedded transition metals
Biography: Vladyslav O Cheranovskii
It is well known, the phase diagrams of the nanostructured magnetic materials demonstrate a variety of low-spin and high-spin states. The switch ability of these states is the central point to potential applications in molecular spintronics and high-density magnetic data storage. In this work, we studied the energy spectrum and thermodynamics of quantum Heisenberg spin model for graphitic nanoribbons with periodically embedded heteroatoms and model chain magnets formed by triangular graphitic clusters. The exact diagonalization study, density matrix renormalization group and Quantum Monte-Carlo method based on stochastic series expansion approach were used for this purpose. We found that clusters with frustrated interactions could exhibit spin switching when the corresponding coupling parameters are changed. For several carbon nanoribbons, we found macroscopic ground state spin and intermediate magnetization plateau. We also studied the exact thermodynamics of infinite distorted nanoribbons described by the special case of Heisenberg-Ising model. Special attention was given to the doped systems described by single-band Hubbard model with strong electron repulsion at partial electron filling. Here we used cyclic spin permutation formalism to derive the corresponding low-energy lattice Hamiltonians. We found numerically the possibility of the spin switching with the change of model parameters. We also demonstrated that the correlated hopping terms, which are present in our Hamiltonians, may change significantly the lowest energy spectra of the corresponding magnets in comparison with the similar description within the framework of the t-J model.
