Magnetism and vibrations in the phase ε{lunate} of oxygen

Sandwiched between a set of magnetic phases at lower pressure, and a non magnetic phase at higher pressure, the magnetic state of phase ε{lunate} of oxygen has so far been elusive, together with its crystal structure. Neutron diffraction data indicate an absence of antiferromagnetism, but do not exclude a ferromagnetic order. The recent refinement of the internal atomic positions from single-crystal diffraction finally provides us with a correct structural model to study the possible occurrence of a magnetic ground state. By employing non-collinear spin-polarized density-functional theory we show that the ground state of ε{lunate}-O2 is non magnetic. We also calculate vibrational spectra and show that ε{lunate}-O2 possesses an additional vibron mode with large Raman cross section, not seen in experiments yet. © 2008 Elsevier Ltd.
