  1. 1. Oct. 31 IJASCSE Vol 1, Issue 3, 2012 Study on momentum density in magnetic semiconductor MnTe by positron annihilation N.Amrane and M. Benkraouda United Arab Emirates University Faculty of Science Abstract--- Electron and positron excluded not only, from the ion charge densities are calculated as cores but also to a considerable a function of position in the unit degree from the valence bonds. cell for MnTe. Wave functions are Electron-positron momentum derived from pseudopotential densities are calculated for band structure calculations and (001,110) planes. The results are the independent particle used to analyze the positron approximation (IPM), respectively, effects in MnTe. for the electrons and the positrons. It is observed that the Keywords: band structure, positron density is maximum in positron charge density, the open interstices and is momentum density. I. INTRODUCTION The family of manganese (MLs) [4, 5] were investigated. chalcogenides (MnS, MnSe, MnTe) Recently, new heterostructures have and pnictides (MnP, MnAs, MnSb) is of been developed in which fractional great experimental and theoretical MLs of magnetic ions are introduced interest because of the digitally within a semiconductor nonstandardmagnetic and electronic quantum well [6]. These structures are behaviour of these materials (Allen of special interest due to the possibility era1 1977, Motizuki and Katoh 1984, to tailor the spin splitting in addition to Neitzel and Barner 1985). Zinc-blende the electronic eigenstates [6,7]. (ZB) MnTe is a prototype of an fcc Recently several calculations were Heisenberg system with strongly done for the ground-state properties dominating antiferromagnetic of MnTe. The present study extends nearestneighbour interactions. While these investigations of the electronic bulk grown crystals of MnTe exhibit the structure of MnTe using positrons. The hexagonal NiAs crystal structure [1], by investigation of the electronic structure nonequilibrium growth techniques like of solids using positrons occupies a molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) single place of increasing importance in solid crystals of MnTe can be synthesized state physics [8,9]. The recent growth also in the ZB phase [2]. in positron studies of defect trapping in In previous works, mainly semiconductors [10,11,12,13] suggests epilayers of ZB MnTe [3,4] and the desirability of an improved superlattices containing MnTe layers theoretical understanding of the with a thickness of several monolayers annihilation parameters for such www.ijascse.in Page 1

Although there has been overestimates the positron annihilation some attempt to study the behavior of rate in the low-momentum regime, thus the positron wave function in giving rise to shorter positron lifetimes compound semiconductors than the experimental values.

This has prompted us to take close to the nucleus. The empirical up such a calculation. methods [22,23,24], while simple in The theoretical calculations of nature , and with the drawback that a the lineshapes are carried out large number of fitting parameters are employing the pseudopotential band required , are very accurate and model for the computation of the produce electronic and positronic wave electron wave function. The positron functions that are in good agreement wave function is evaluated under with experiments. This approach was the point core approximation ( the encouraged by the work of Jarlborg et independent particle model) . The al who discovered that the empirical crystal potential experienced by a pseudopotentials gave a better positron differs from that experienced agreement with the experimental by an electron. Since we assume that electronic structures than the first- there is at most one positron in the principles calculations [25]. crystal at any time, there are no We remark, at this point, that positron-positron interactions, i-e. while a positron in a solid state is a exchange or corrections. Thus positron part of the system with important potential results from a part due to the many-body interactions, the quantum nuclei and another part due to the independent model (IPM) is often very electrons, both components being useful. Positron annihilation techniques purely coulombic in nature. have resulted in very useful The density functional theory information on the electron behavior (DFT) combined with the local density in semiconductors and alloys . The approximation (LDA) or with the positron initially with a large energy (1 generalized gradient approximation MeV) rapidly loses energy in the (GGA) [ 18,19,20] is one of the most sample mostly through ionization and efficient methods for electron-structure excitation processes, when the calculations, it has also been used for positron is in thermal equilibrium with positrons states in bulk metals in order the sample, annihilation occurs with a to determine the momentum valence electron yielding two  rays. distribution of the annihilating positron- The positron lifetime measurements electron pairs [21]. However those yield information [26] on the electron calculations are technically difficult and density at the position of the positron. computationally time consuming.

Compared to this, the profile along potential.
