The phenomenon of spin transfer torque (STT) has attracted a great deal of interests due to its promising prospects in practical spintronic devices. In this paper, we report a theoretical investigation of STT in a noncollinear magnetic tunnel junction under ac modulation based on the nonequilibrium Green's function formalism, and derive a closed-formulation for predicting the time-averaged STT. Using this formulation, the ac STT of a carbon-nanotube-based magnetic tunnel junction is analyzed. Read More

We demonstrate that Mn-doping in the layered sulfides Bi_4O_4S_3 leads to stable Bi_4-x Mn_x O_4 S_3 compounds that exhibit both long-range ferromagnetism and enhanced superconductivity for 0.075 < = x < = 0.15, with a possible record superconducting transition temperature (T_c) = 15 K among all BiS_2-based superconductors.

We present an efficient implemention of a non-equilibrium Green function (NEGF) method for self-consistent calculations of electron transport and forces in nanostructured materials. The electronic structure is described at the level of density functional theory (DFT) using the projector augmented wave method (PAW) to describe the ionic cores and an atomic orbital basis set for the valence electrons. External bias and gate voltages are treated in a self-consistent manner and the Poisson equation with appropriate boundary conditions is solved in real space. Read More

We report a first principles investigation of photocurrent generation by graphene PN junctions. The junctions are formed by either chemically doping with nitrogen and boron atoms, or by controlling gate voltages. Non-equilibrium Green's function (NEGF) formalism combined with density functional theory (DFT) is applied to calculate the photo-response function. Read More

Transition voltage spectroscopy (TVS) is a promising spectroscopic tool for molecular junctions. The principles in TVS is to find the minimum on a Fowler-Nordheim plot where $\ln(I/V^2)$ is plotted against $1/V$ and relate the voltage at the minimum, $V_{\rm min}$, to the closest molecular level. Importantly, $V_{\rm min}$, is approximately half the voltage required to see a peak in the $dI/dV$ curve. Read More

Transition voltage spectroscopy (TVS) has recently been introduced as a spectroscopic tool for molecular junctions where it offers the possibility to probe molecular level energies at relatively low bias voltages. In this work we perform extensive ab-initio calculations of the non-linear current voltage relations for a broad class of single-molecule transport junctions in order to assess the applicability and limitations of TVS. We find, that in order to fully utilize TVS as a quantitative spectroscopic tool, it is important to consider asymmetries in the coupling of the molecule to the two electrodes. Read More

Through the analysis of density of states (DOS), we study two different kinds of cyclic molecules, a sodium atomic circle and a Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH) molecule respectively under an external magnetic field. The results of calculation show that original DOS peaks split into two and the positions of peaks can be modulated periodically by controlling the magnetic field. We attribute this phenomenon to the interaction between the molecular orbital magnetic momentum and the magnetic field. Read More

Based on the matrix Green's function method combined with hybrid tight-binding / density functional theory, we calculate the conductances of a series of gold-dithiol molecule-gold junctions including benzenedithiol (BDT), benzenedimethanethiol (BDMT), hexanedithiol (HDT), octanedithiol (ODT) and decanedithiol (DDT). An atomically-contacted extended molecule model is used in our calculation. As an important procedure, we determine the position of the Fermi level by the energy reference according to the results from ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopy (UPS) experiments. Read More
