Abstract

Magnetocrystalline anisotropy (MCA) is positively correlated with corercivity that is one ofimportant magnetic figures of merit for applications such as high-density magnetic recordingmedia, high-frequency electromagnetic wave absorbers, and permanent magnets. In general,MCA is given for an entire phase of a material. In light of materials engineering, however, MCAinformation at respective atoms in crystals is useful to identify weak parts for possiblenucleation cores of magnetic reversal and design the local MCA. Considering these facts, weexamined the local MCA of hard magnetic materials on the basis of density functional theoryand the second perturbation theory on spin-orbit interaction [1]. We studied the magneticproperties of ε-Fe2O3, which shows the largest coercivity among all the metal oxides [2].Particularly, we tried to elucidate the effect of an oxygen vacancy on the magnetic properties.As a result, we clarified that the vacancy enhances both the magnetic moment and MAE.
