Electronic Structure in the Organic-based Magnet [Feᴵᴵ(TCNE)(NCMe)₂][FeᴵᴵᴵCl₄] using the Orthogonalized Linear Combination of Atomic Orbitals Method with Hubbard U
The Hubbard U parameter is applied to the organic-based magnet [Feᴵᴵ(TCNE)(NCMe)₂][FeᴵᴵᴵCl₄] using the Orthogonalized Linear Combination of Atomic Orbitals (OCLAO) methods. The Local Spin Density Approximation (LSDA) method plus the Hubbard U parameter is used to account for on-site atomic Coulombic repulsion and exchange correlation interactions for the d orbitals of the FeII atoms. Applying the Hubbard U parameter results in an increased band gap and clear spin splitting.
