Magnetic anisotropy and engineering of magnetic behavior of the edges in Co embedded graphene nanoribbons.

Using first-principles calculations, we demonstrate the existence of anisotropic ferromagnetic interactions in Co embedded graphene nanoribbons (GNRs). Spin polarization of the edge states is found to alter significantly compared to the metal-free cases. Our findings can all be well-justified as the output of the interplay between the development of an… CONTINUE READING
