Interplay between the orbital and magnetic order in monolayer La(1-x)Sr(1+x)MnO(4) manganites.

A two-dimensional model which describes e(g) electrons in a monolayer of an undoped and half doped manganite La(1-x)Sr(1+x)MnO(4) is studied using correlated wavefunctions. The effective Hamiltonian takes into account the kinetic energy, the crystal field splitting between x(2)-y(2) and 3z(2)-r(2) orbitals, and on-site Coulomb interactions for e(g… CONTINUE READING
