A Density Functional Theory Study of the Fe(001)/Fe3O4(001) Interface
Magnetite is a very promising candidate for hard electrode in magnetic tunnel junction devices due to its electronic and magnetic properties. Addition of a buffer iron layer improves required properties. Here we report on the results of our DFT study of the impact of the additional Fe buffer layer on the electronic and magnetic properties of magnetite.
