异质界面极性不连续性电子结构重构半金属双交换机制Heterointerface Polar Discontinuity Electronic Reconstruction Half-Metal Double-Exchange



Based on extensive first-principle density functional calculations, we have revealed the charge transfer and half-metallic ferromagnetism induced by the polar electronic field in LaAlO3/SrMnO3 (111) superlattices. At the (LaO3)/Mn interface, electrons transfer from LaAlO33 side to SrMnO3 component and occupy eg orbital of Mn ions, inducing half-metallic ferromagnetism of this kind of superlattice. On the other hand, for the superlattices with (SrO3)/La interface, the holes reside almost uniformly at the oxygen atoms of SrO3 and LaO3 atomic planes. With absence of the eg states at the Mn sites, bulk-like G-type AFM ordering were obvious. But this type superlattices are metallic because of hole transfer.
