Spin-polarized electronic surface states of Re(0001): An ab-initio investigation

  title={Spin-polarized electronic surface states of Re(0001): An ab-initio investigation},
  author={Andrea Urru and Andrea Dal Corso},
Abstract We study the electronic structure of the Re(0001) surface by means of ab-initio techniques based on the Fully Relativistic (FR) Density Functional Theory (DFT) and the Projector Augmented-Wave (PAW) method. We identify the main surface states and resonances and study in detail their energy dispersion along the main symmetry lines of the SBZ. Moreover, we discuss the effect of spin-orbit coupling on the energy splittings and the spin-polarization of the main surface states and… CONTINUE READING
