Umerski A, Edwards DM, 2017, New calculations of Gilbert damping in ferromagnetic transition metals, 8th Joint European Magnetic Symposia (JEMS), Publisher: IOP PUBLISHING LTD, ISSN: 1742-6588

Calculations of the Gilbert damping parameter alpha for bulk Ni are presentedas a function of the spin-dependent Lorentzian broadening of the one-electron states. TheKambersky formula for alpha is used, correctly restricted to second order in the spin-orbitparameter so that intra band terms are suppressed, and the spin-dependent broadening isdeduced from the recent calculations of electron lifetimes due to electron-phonon scatteringby Carva et al. The calculated value of alpha for Ni at room temperature is in reasonableagreement with experiment.

Edwards DM, 2016, The absence of intraband scattering in a consistent theory of Gilbert damping in pure metallic ferromagnets, Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter, Vol: 28, ISSN: 0953-8984

Damping of magnetization dynamics in a ferromagnetic metal, arising from spin–orbit coupling, is usually characterised by the Gilbert parameter α. Recent calculations of this quantity, using a formula due to Kambersky, find that it is infinite for a perfect crystal owing to an intraband scattering term which is of third order in the spin–orbit parameter ξ. This surprising result conflicts with recent work by Costa and Muniz who study damping numerically by direct calculation of the dynamical transverse susceptibility in the presence of spin–orbit coupling. We resolve this inconsistency by following the approach of Costa and Muniz for a slightly simplified model where it is possible to calculate α analytically. We show that to second order in ξ one retrieves the Kambersky result for α, but to higher order one does not obtain any divergent intraband terms. The present work goes beyond that of Costa and Muniz by pointing out the necessity of including the effect of long-range Coulomb interaction in calculating damping for large ξ. A direct derivation of the Kambersky formula is given which shows clearly the restriction of its validity to second order in ξ so that no intraband scattering terms appear. This restriction has an important effect on the damping over a substantial range of impurity content and temperature. The experimental situation is discussed.

A model is introduced in which an electron emits or absorbs a local boson every time it hops between lattice sites. The velocity of coherent electron propagation is governed by a control parameter lambda. which determines the rate of boson decay. It is shown how a quantum phase transition between two Fermi liquids, with different Fermi surfaces, can occur at lambda with non-Fermi liquid behaviour persisting down to temperature T = 0 at the critical point.

We show that a strongly renormalized band of polaronic quasiparticle excitations is induced at the Fermi level of an interacting many-electron system on increasing the coupling of the electrons to local phonons. We give results for the local density of states at zero temperature both for the electrons and phonons. The polaronic quasiparticles satisfy Luttinger's theorem for all regimes considered, and their dispersion shows a kink similar to that observed experimentally in copper oxides. Our calculations are based on the dynamical mean field theory and the numerical renormalization group for the hole-doped Holstein-Hubbard model and large on-site repulsion.
