Arsenene nanoribbon edge-resolved strong magnetism

Abstract

We proposed a mechanism to induce a strong magnetism up to 8.58 emu/g of the hexagonal-phase arsenene nanoribbon (AsNR) from the perspective of edge quantum entrapment. Consistency between bond-order-length-strength correlation (BOLS) theory and density functional theory (DFT) calculations verified that: (i) the edge bond contraction of 9.54% deepened the edge potential well of AsNR, (ii) net electron of 0.06e- transferring from inner to edge; (iii) Edge quantum well polarized the unpaired electron and the net spin (antiferromagnetic or ferromagnetic depending on width) is localized at zigzag edge. The finding sheds a light for the applications of AsNR in the magnetic storage devices.
