Summary of "Prediction of colossal magnetocrystalline anisotropy for transition metal triiodides."

In virtue of first principle calculations based on density functional theory, we have investigated the magnetism of transition metal triiodides XI3 (X=Cr, Mn, Fe, Mo, Tc, Ru, W, Re, Os) monolayers. Our results indicate that CrI3, TcI3, RuI3, ReI3 and OsI3 monolayers are ferromagnetic (FM), while MnI3, FeI3, MoI3 and WI3 monolayers are antiferromagnetic (AFM). Interestingly, TcI3, RuI3, ReI3 and OsI3 monolayers have considerable magnetic anisotropy energy (MAE). Especially, ReI3 monolayer exhibits the largest MAE (-36.22 meV/ReI3) in known two-dimensional (2D) van der Waals (vdW) crystals. We further demonstrate that biaxial strain can greatly change MAEs of ReI3 and OsI3 monolayers. From the electronic structure analysis, the change in MAE is mainly attributed from the charge transfer between the a and e2 states induced by biaxial strain. In addition, we have also found that a tensile strain can lead to a phase transition of ReI3 from FM to AFM. We predicted that 2D FM XI3 monolayers are promising candidates for the application in tunable magnetic storage technology.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The reaction of two molecular entities via oxidation usually catalyzed by a transition metal compound and involving dioxygen as the oxidant.

A physical property showing different values in relation to the direction in or along which the measurement is made. The physical property may be with regard to thermal or electric conductivity or light refraction. In crystallography, it describes crystals whose index of refraction varies with the direction of the incident light. It is also called acolotropy and colotropy. The opposite of anisotropy is isotropy wherein the same values characterize the object when measured along axes in all directions.

Predicting the time of OVULATION can be achieved by measuring the preovulatory elevation of ESTRADIOL; LUTEINIZING HORMONE or other hormones in BLOOD or URINE. Accuracy of ovulation prediction depends on the completeness of the hormone profiles, and the ability to determine the preovulatory LH peak.

Phenotypic changes of EPITHELIAL CELLS to MESENCHYME type, which increase cell mobility critical in many developmental processes such as NEURAL TUBE development. NEOPLASM METASTASIS and DISEASE PROGRESSION may also induce this transition.
