Summary of "Orbital order and electron itinerancy in CoV2O4 and Mn0.5Co0.5V2O4 from first principles."

In view of the recent experimental predictions of a weak structural transition in CoV$_{2}$O$_{4}$ we explore the possible orbital order states in its low temperature tetragonal phases from first principles density functional theory calculations. We observe that the tetragonal phase with I4$_1/amd$ symmetry is associated with an orbital order involving complex orbitals with a reasonably large orbital moment at Vanadium sites while in the phase with I4$_1/a$ symmetry, the real orbitals with quenched orbital moment constitute the orbital order. Further, to study the competition between orbital order and electron itinerancy we considered Mn$_{0.5}$Co$_{0.5}$V$_{2}$O$_{4}$ as one of the parent compounds, CoV$_{2}$O$_{4}$, lies near itinerant limit while the other, MnV$_{2}$O$_{4}$, lies deep inside the orbitally ordered insulating regime. Orbital order and electron transport have been investigated using first principles density functional theory and Boltzmann transport theory in CoV$_{2}$O$_{4}$, MnV$_{2}$O$_{4}$ and Mn$_{0.5}$Co$_{0.5}$V$_{2}$O$_{4}$. Our results show that as we go from MnV$_{2}$O$_{4}$ to CoV$_{2}$O$_{4}$ there is enhancement in the electron's itinerancy while the nature of orbital order remains unchanged.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A nonspecific tumor-like inflammatory lesion in the ORBIT of the eye. It is usually composed of mature LYMPHOCYTES; PLASMA CELLS; MACROPHAGES; LEUKOCYTES with varying degrees of FIBROSIS. Orbital pseudotumors are often associated with inflammation of the extraocular muscles (ORBITAL MYOSITIS) or inflammation of the lacrimal glands (DACRYOADENITIS).

Inflammation of the extraocular muscle of the eye. It is characterized by swelling which can lead to ischemia, fibrosis, or ORBITAL PSEUDOTUMOR.

Rounded objects made of coral, teflon, or alloplastic polymer and covered with sclera, and which are implanted in the orbit following enucleation. An artificial eye (EYE, ARTIFICIAL) is usually attached to the anterior of the orbital implant for cosmetic purposes.

Microscopy using an electron beam, instead of light, to visualize the sample, thereby allowing much greater magnification. The interactions of ELECTRONS with specimens are used to provide information about the fine structure of that specimen. In TRANSMISSION ELECTRON MICROSCOPY the reactions of the electrons that are transmitted through the specimen are imaged. In SCANNING ELECTRON MICROSCOPY an electron beam falls at a non-normal angle on the specimen and the image is derived from the reactions occurring above the plane of the specimen.

A type of TRANSMISSION ELECTRON MICROSCOPY in which the object is examined directly by an extremely narrow electron beam scanning the specimen point-by-point and using the reactions of the electrons that are transmitted through the specimen to create the image. It should not be confused with SCANNING ELECTRON MICROSCOPY.
