English abstract:
Magnetic anisotropic phenomena in Mn
Ge and Mn
Ga ferrimagnets are studied by first-
principles density functional theory calcula
tions. We find a large positive magnetic anisot-
ropy energy, associated with the Mn-atoms in t
he 4d-crystallographic positions. Sizable
anisotropy in the density of states is found in
the vicinity of the Fermi energy, and suggests
the promising possibility for the generation of a sizable tunneling anisotropic magneto-resistance
effect (TAMR). The use of the ferrimagnetic materials for TAMR magnetic tunneling junctions
is discussed as a prospective alternative for ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic materials.
