The semiconductor-to-ferromagnetic-metal transition in FeSb2
Abstract.We propose FeSb2 to be a nearly ferromagnetic small gap semiconductor, hence a direct analog of FeSi. We find that despite different compositions and crystal structures, in the local
Electronic structure of Fe4Si4–x Gex (x = 0–4) compounds: ab initio calculation
The structural and electronic properties of Fe4Si4–x Gex (x = 0–4) with a cubic B20‐type structure are investigated by density functional theory using an ab initio method. The calculations are based
Metallic state in cubic FeGe beyond its quantum phase transition.
Results of electrical resistivity and structural investigations on the cubic modification of FeGe under high pressure suggest that the suppression of T(C) disagrees with the standard notion of a quantum critical phase transition.
Optical evidence for heavy charge carriers in FeGe
The optical spectrum of the cubic helimagnetic metal FeGe has been investigated in the frequency range from 0.01 - 3.1 eV for different temperatures from 30 K to 296 K. The optical conductivity shows
Control of Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction in Mn1−xFexGe: a first-principles study
By means of first-principles calculations, this work successfully reproduce the non-trivial sign change of the DM interaction observed in the experiment, paving the new way for skyrmion crystal engineering in metallic helimagnets.


Band structure and semiconducting properties of FeSi.
The results of linear augmented-plane-wave band calculations for cubic FeSi, carried out in the local-density approximation, predict a small (-0.11 eV) indirect semiconductor gap which agrees well

Local-density calculations of the electronic structure as a function of temperature T and applied magnetic field H are presented for FeSi, finding that low-T properties are understood from mean-field calculations based on the band structure, but spin fluctuations have to be invoked to describe properties for T larger than about 200 K.
First-order transition from a Kondo insulator to a ferromagnetic metal in single crystalline FeSi(1-x)Ge(x).
The phase diagram of FeSi(1-x)Ge(x), obtained from magnetic, thermal, and transport measurements on single crystals, shows a discontinuous transition from Kondo insulator to ferromagnetic metal with
Thermodynamics of FeSi.
It is concluded that, given the available alternatives, a Kondo insulator description---involving an extreme renormalization of the noninteracting bands---is most appropriate for FeSi.
Temperature-induced local moments in MnSi and FeSi
A unified theory is given of the magnetic and thermal properties of the itinerant-electron magnet MnSi and the non-magnetic semiconductor FeSi. The calculations are based on the spin-fluctuation
Electronic structure and optical properties of FeSi, a strongly correlated insulator.
The optical response incorporating simple finite-temperature effects, namely, electron-phonon scattering of intrinsic carriers, is calculated and it is found that this provides a poor direct fit to recent infrared measurements.
