Geometry and magnetic structure of LSMO/YMnO3 interface
Geometry and magnetic structure of LSMO/YMnO3 interface

We study the interplay of spin, orbital and lattice degrees of freedom at the interfaces of functional oxide heterostructures. Complex magnetic structures, ferroelectric polarization and effects of electron correlation are investigated at the interfaces by ab initio calculations. One of our latest achievements is to explain the vertical shift in exchange bias measurements at the heterointerfaces (LSMO/YMnO3).
