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

By using first-principles method combined with molecular dynamics simulations, the structural and electronic properties of mono-vacancy (MV) defect in Mobius strip formed from graphene are investigated. Two kinds of MV are observed depending on the local structures around defects. In the curved areas of Mobius strip, MV has the configuration of one pentagon and one nonagon ring (59-type), which is similar to that of carbon nanotube and graphene. Read More

The search or design of silicon nanostructures similar to their carbon analogues has attracted great interest recently. In this work, density functional calculations are performed to systematically study a series of finite and infinite hydrogenated cluster-assembled silicon nanotubes (SiNTs). It is found that stable one-dimensional SiNTs with formula $Si_{m(3k+1)}H_{2m(k+1)}$ can be constructed by proper assembly of hydrogenated fullerene-like silicon clusters $Si_{4m}H_{4m}$. Read More

Density functional calculations were performed to systematically study a series of finite and infinite cluster-assembled silicon nanotubes (SiNTs). One-dimensional SiNTs can be prepared by proper assembly of hydrogenated cage-like silicon clusters to form semiconductors with a large band gap, and their electronic properties can be accurately tuned by transition metal doping in the center of the tubes. Specifically, doping with Fe made the SiNTs metallic and magnetic materials. Read More

The properties of organometallic wires [TM2(Ant)] constructed with transitional metals (TM = Sc, Ti, V, Cr, Mn and Fe) and anthracene (Ant) are investigated by first-principles calculations. As the gap between HOMO (Highest Occupied Molecular Orbital) and LUMO (Lowest Unoccupied Molecular Orbital) of Ant is much smaller than that of benzene (Bz), much larger charge transfer (CT) occurs between TMs and Ant, which results in much more diverse magnetic properties in [TM2(Ant)] than in [TM2(Ant)]. Particularly, [V2(Ant)] and [Cr2(Ant)] are found to be half-metallic ferromagnets. Read More
