Tuning interfacial spin filters from metallic to resistive within a single organic semiconductor family

Tuning interfacial spin filters from metallic to resistive within a single organic semiconductor... A metallic spin filter is observed at the interface between Alq3 adsorbates and a Cr(001) surface. It can be changed to a resistive (i.e., gapped) filter by substituting Cr ions to make Crq3 adsorbates. Spin-polarized scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy show these spin-dependent electronic structure changes with single molecule resolution. Density functional theory calculations highlight the structural and electronic differences at the interfaces. For Alq3, a charge-transfer interaction with the substrate leads to a metallic spin filter. For Crq3, direct covalent interactions mix molecular orbitals with the substrate surface state to make two well-separated interfacial hybrid orbitals. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Physical Review B American Physical Society (APS)
