Multiferroicity and para/ferroelectric transition in GeV4S8

  1. 1. Elena Cannuccia Multiferroicity and para/ferroelectric transition in GeV4S8 04/04/2017 Lab. “Physique des Interactions Ioniques et Moleculaires” Campus Saint Jerome, Marseille Dipartimento di Fisica, Université de Rome “Tor Vergata” Institut Laue Langevin, Grenoble

  4. 4. Hi, I have strong polarization and weak magneto- electric coupling Hi, I have weak polarization and large magneto- electric coupling Type I Type II Watch out for these two guys (2 types of Multiferroic Materials) P∼(1−100)μC /cm 2 P∼10−2 μC/cm2
  5. 5. Towards a new kind of type I multiferroic compounds We are an assorted group: charge and orbital order MF compunds are my friends I do not know them ! Type I Type II P=0.75μC /cm2
  6. 6. GeV4S8 is a new type I multiferroic compounds Ge S < 3 ˚A ≈ 4 ˚A V Formation of molecular-like electronic states within the clusters. Special class of Mott insulators because of the possibility to tune the insulator-to-metal transitions

T [K]T [K] Phase transitions in GeV4S8 300 ● cubic ● Assigned to F-43m SG ● paraelectric ● not centrosymm. but not polar ● insulating 3217 ● orthorhombic ● Assigned to Imm2 SG ● ferroelectric ● Not centrosym, polar ● insulating ● orthorhombic ● Assigned to Pmn21 SG ● antiferromagnetic ● Polar, insulating K.Singh, et al.

  8. 8. The search of ferroelectricity was then engaged K.Singh, et al. Phys. Rev. Lett. 113, 137602 (2014) Presence of finite polarization The polarization increases discontinuously: paraelectric/ferroelectric phase transition The polarization decreases abruptly: Magneto-electric coupling
  9. 9. The magneto-electric coupling in GeV4S8 K.Singh, et al. Phys. Rev. Lett. 113, 137602 (2014) The external magnetic field affects the P magnitude and the T dependence of P below TN A deeper examination of the GeV4 S8 structure below TS is instructive in order to address the origin of the ferroelectricity. GeV4 S8 is a very promising multiferroic compound.

  15. 15. Phonons in the paraelectric (HT) phase F43m ✗ We predicted a metallic ground state: WRONG DOS ✗ Experimental and optimized geometry significantly differ each other ✗ Global assignment of intense exper. modes: NOT POSSIBLE the B3LYP functional, we tried B1WC and PBE0 functionals We questioned the spin-unpolarized calculation the quality of the basis set, we repeated with a plane-wave code
  16. 16. Let’s tackle the problem from a more physical point of view Title:/srv/www/bcs_branch_www//bcs/www Creator:dvips(k) 5.98 Copyright 2009 Rad CreationDate:Mon Apr 3 11:27:25 2017Having equivalent extinction rules, a small symm. breaking is difficult to detect in X-ray F43m I4m2 DOS E.

V1 -V1 V2 -V2 Ge S Irrep E: -200 cm-1 Physical interpretation of some phonon mode Irrep B2 : 322 cm-1 Softening of the mode below Ts Bond/stretching elongation V4S4 cluster Any softening of the mode below Ts Irrep E: 305 cm-1 Any intracluster movements E. Cannuccia, et al. JPC 121, 3522 (2017)
  18. 18. Conclusions We propose the assignement of the HT phase phonon spectrum in the I4m2 group Several phonon modes are softened below Ts, and drive the intracluster atomic movements observed in the ferroelectric transition The simultaneous weakening/strengthening of V-V bonds is a direct consequence of the orbital order instability seen as driving force of the ferroelectric transition
