Study of the 4f and valence band density of states in rare-earth metals. II. Experiment and results

For pt.I see ibid., vol.11, p.113 (1980). The 4f and valence states of all metallic rare earths have been studied using X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) for the occupied part and bremsstrahlung

The role of ultrafast magnon generation in the magnetization dynamics of rare-earth metals

Coupling of the 4f spins to the lattice via the orbital momentum as an essential mechanism driving magnetization dynamics via ultrafast magnon generation in technically relevant materials with strong magnetic anisotropy is established.

Distinguishing the ultrafast dynamics of spin and orbital moments in solids

The important role played by the spin–orbit interaction in the ultrafast laser-induced demagnetization of ferromagnetic films is highlighted, and it is shown that the magneto-crystalline anisotropy energy is an important quantity to consider in such processes.

Magnetic anisotropy in Gd, GdN, and GdFe 2 tuned by the energy of gadolinium 4 f states

The tiny magnetocrystalline anisotropy energies (MAEs) of bulk Gd, GdN, and ${\text{GdFe}}_{2}$ have been calculated by means of the force theorem in conjunction with the full-potential linear

TOPICAL REVIEW: Coherent and incoherent excitations of the Gd(0001) surface on ultrafast timescales

The dynamics of collective excitations of electrons, phonons, and spins are of fundamental interest to develop a microscopic understanding of interactions among elementary excitations and of the

Multiplet ligand-field theory using Wannier orbitals

We demonstrate how ab initio cluster calculations including the full Coulomb vertex can be done in the basis of the localized, generalized Wannier orbitals which describe the low-energy density

A high-order harmonic generation apparatus for time- and angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy.

We present a table top setup for time- and angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy to investigate band structure dynamics of correlated materials driven far from equilibrium by femtosecond laser

Temporal and spectral fingerprints of ultrafast all-coherent spin switching

Antenna-enhanced terahertz pulses ballistically switch spins in antiferromagnetic TmFeO3 with minimal energy dissipation between metastable minima of the anisotropy potential, as characterized by unique temporal and spectral fingerprints.
