Density functional theory (DFT) has been used on a arivety of metals and compounds to successfully describe their ground state properties.

This work is focused on the transition metal chromium. Cr is the prime example of an itinerant antiferromagnet, its incommensurate spin density wave (SDW) is a truly many-body e ect. The origin of the SDW is. Spin-Density-Wave QC at a Conventional QCP Bulk b.c.c. chromium is known to have an exotic type of antiferromagnetic order: a spin density wave A spin-state transition at K will change the low-state Co 4 + to the intermediate state in which the entropy of 3d electrons will increase and in turn the Seebeck coefficient.

Spin density wave state of chromium. book propose an interpretation of neutron scattering and other experimental results on chromium in terms of a transition to a spin-split state rather than to an incommensurate spin-density-wave. We report on X-ray magnetic diffraction studies of the spin density wave antiferromagnetism formed in the conduction electron band of chromium.

Non-resonant X-ray magnetic scattering was used to directly determine that chromium has zero orbital magnetisation. Furthermore, the azimuthal dependence of this scattering provides unique evidence that Cited by: spin-density wave and two different forms of commensurate spin-density wave.

A phenomenologically deter-mined low-temperature phase diagram is created to describe the spin-density wave in chromium in the stress-disorder plane. The effects of stress and disorder on the spin-density wave of chromium films are analogous to.

Chromium orders at T N = K in a first-order phase transition with a transverse sine-wave phase which undergoes a first-order spin reorientation transition at K to a longitudinal sine-wave phase. A second-harmonic charge density wave (CDW) accompany the spin density wave (SDW) through electron–phonon interaction.

Abstract. Neutron scattering experiments with full polarization analysis have been performed with a single crystal of chromium to study the low-energy spin fluctuations in the transverse spin density wave (TSDW) : Roger Pynn, R.

We have observed the spin wave modes. There are well over materials which, over a temperature range, support a spin-density wave. These include some of the rare-earth elements of the lanthanide series and the 3 d transition metals, manganese and chromium, the latter being the prototypical itinerant electron antiferromagnet.

See e.g. Fradkin's book "Field Theories of Condensed Matter Physics". If the ordering vector is not a reciprocal lattice vector you get incommensurate spin density waves. Often such ordering is also referred to as antiferromagnetism, however. The most famous example is probably chromium, which has an alternating moment between planes, and a.

We have carried out a triple‐axis polarized‐neutron‐beam experiment with polarization analysis of the final beam and magnetic fields to 15 kG applied to a pure Cr single crystal. The purpose was to determine whether the spin axis in the transversely polarized spin‐density wave state (°K–°C) is confined to the cube edges or whether in sufficient Cited by: Density waves in solids George Gruner Discusses the theoretical and experimental state of affairs of two novel types of broken symmetry ground states of metals, charge, and spin density waves.

Density waves in solids George Gruner. Through his seminal experiments and his careful attention to comparing theory with experiment, George Grner has played a leading role in elucidating this important frontier topic in condensed-matter physics.

You can write a book review and share your experiences. Other readers will always be interested. The magnetic phase diagrams of all dilute Cr alloys can be explained by a simple theoretical model with coupled spin- and charge-density waves and a finite electron reservoir.

If the charge-density wave and electron reservoir are sufficiently large, the paramagnetic to commensurate spin-density wave transition becomes strongly first order, as found in Cr{sub 1- x}Fe{sub x} Cited by: 2. Neutron scattering measurements of the critical fluctuations associated with the spin‐density‐wave transition at the Néel temperature, T N ≊ K, in a single‐Q chromium crystal are reported.

Critical fluctuations are observed emanating from allowed magnetic satellite positions and from satellite positions, corresponding to absent magnetic domains, at which no elastic scattering Author: B.

A novel and rare state of matter known as a quantum spin liquid has been empirically demonstrated in a monocrystal of the compound calcium-chromium oxide by team at HZB.

According to conventional. But I thought the pure chromium is in fact a spin density wave (SDW) metal rather than an insulating antiferromagnet. In this case, I suspect that the origin of SDW in chromium has more to do with the Fermi surface geometry (or broadly, electronic structure) of chromium in its paramagnetic state than the local exchange interactions.
