"Density functionals and half-metallicity in La2/3Sr1/3MnO3"

Phys. Status Solidi A 203(6) (2006) 1437-1441
The electronic structure and equilibrium geometry of La2/3Sr1/3MnO3 are studied theoretically by means of density functional calculations. The doping is treated by introducing holes and a compensating jellium background. The results for the local density approximation (LDA) agree with previous LDA calculations, with an equilibrium volume 5.3% too small and with both majority and minority spin states present at the Fermi level for the relaxed system. The generalised gradient approximation (GGA) offers a qualitatively improved description of the system, with a more realistic volume, and a half-metallic behaviour for the relaxed structure, which enables studies needing theoretical relaxation. The ideal MnO2-terminated (001) surface is then described with explicit doping.
