Abstract:
The electronic structure and magnetism of individual Dy atom adsorbed on the (1 1 1) surface of Ir is investigated using the combination of the density functional theory with the Hubbard-I approximation to the Anderson impurity model (DFT + HIA). The Dy$^{3+}$ adatom is found magnetic with the magnetic moment of 9:35$\mu_{B}$ in the external magnetic field. The spin and orbital magnetic moments, and their ratio are evaluated, and compared with the X-ray magnetic circular dichroism data. The positive magnetic anisotropy energy of $\approx$ 1.3 meV determines the out-of-plane orientation of the Dy adatom magnetic moment. The role of 5d-4f interorbital exchange polarization in modification of the 4f shell energy spectrum is emphasized. We predict the Dy magnetization to drop by the factor of three with switching off the external magnetic field.
