Dynamical spin-orbital correlation in the frustrated magnet Ba3CuSb2O9.
An X-ray scattering study of a dynamic spin-orbital state in the frustrated magnet Ba3CuSb2O9 is reported, which strongly supports a new quantum state in which spins and orbitals are entangled. Expand
(Heisenberg) exchange and electrostatic interactions between O2 molecules: An ab initio study
The electrostatic and exchange interactions between two ground state 3Σ−g O2 molecules have been calculated ab initio by means of first order exchange perturbation theory. The nonorthogonalityExpand
Magnetic control of ferroelectric polarization
The discovery of ferroelectricity in a perovskite manganite, TbMnO3, where the effect of spin frustration causes sinusoidal antiferromagnetic ordering and gigantic magnetoelectric and magnetocapacitance effects are found. Expand
The interaction between two O2(3Σ−g) molecules gives rise to three dimer states with spin quantum number S=0, 1, and 2. The splitting between the spin states is accurately represented by theExpand
Orbital physics in transition-metal oxides
An overview is given here on this "orbital physics," which will be a key concept for the science and technology of correlated electrons. Expand
Spin–orbital superexchange physics emerging from interacting oxygen molecules in KO2
We propose that the spin–orbital–lattice coupled phenomena, widely known for the transition-metal oxides, can be realized in molecular solids, comprising of orbitally degenerate magnetic O2− ions.Expand
Superexchange interaction and symmetry properties of electron orbitals
Abstract The relation between the symmetry of electron orbitals and superexchange interaction is discussed. It is shown that the sign of the superexchange interaction is closely connected with theExpand
Raman spectra of O−2 and O−3 ions in alkali-metal superoxides and ozonides
Abstract Raman spectra of polycrystalline NaO2, KO2, RbO2, CsO2, KO3, and CsO3 were measured from 75 to 300°K. Solid-solid phase transition effeccts were noted in spectra of the sodium, potassium,Expand
