Abstract:

We report ab-initio calculations of the spin-dependent transport and magnetoresistance of Ni atom wires. The electronic states are calculated using a numerical pseudo atomic orbital basis set in the frame work of the density functional theory, and the conductance is calculated using the Greens function method. We show a magnetoresistance of 250, which is explained by the scattering of d orbital channels.
