Single-ion 4f element magnetism: an ab-initio look at Ln(COT)2

Author affiliations

Abstract

The electron densities associated with the Ln 4f shell, and spin and orbital magnetizations (‘magnetic moment densities’), are investigated for the Ln(COT)2 series. The densities are obtained from ab-initio calculations including spin–orbit coupling. For Ln = Ce, Pr the magnetizations are also derived from crystal field models and shown to agree with the ab-initio results. Analysis of magnetizations from ab-initio calculations may be useful in assisting research on single molecule magnets.
