The interplay between covalency and magnetism is non-trivial and can be harnessed for designing new functional magnetic materials. Based on a survey using density functional calculations, we show that $TM\unicode{x2013}O$ bond covalency can increase the total magnetic moment of spinel compounds of $TMFe_2O_4$ composition ($TM = V-Ni, Nb-Pd$) which are isomorphic to the much-researched magnetite. Accordingly, $PdFe_2O_4$ was found to exhibit the highest magnetic moment of 7.809 ${\mu}_B$ per… Expand

It is demonstrated that in an oxygen poor environment, Gd and Yb dopants reside in the Na layer while in a oxygen rich environment these dopants replace a Co in CoO2 layer, demonstrating how thermoelectric performance critically depends on the synthesis environment that must be fine-tuned for achieving any thermoelectedric enhancement.

Introduction to Magnetic Oxides
Oxides are ubiquitous. The Earth’s crust and mantle are largely made up of compounds of metal cations and oxygen anions. Looking at the composition of the crust in Figure 1.1, we see that oxygen isExpand
