First-principles theory of electronic structure and magnetism of Cr nano-islands on Pd(1 1 1).

Abstract

We report on the electronic structure, magnetic moments and exchange interactions of one- and two-dimensional Cr clusters on a Pd(1 1 1) substrate, using a real-space method based on density functional theory in the local spin density approximation. We find in general that for the investigated clusters, the magnetic moments are sizeable and almost entirely… (More)
