Abstract [en]

Motivated by the search for design principles of rare-earth-free strong magnets, we present a study of electronic structure and magnetic properties of the ferromagnetic metal Fe3GeTe2 within the local-density approximation (LDA) of the density-functional theory, and its combination with dynamical mean-field theory (DMFT). To compare these calculations, we measure magnetic and thermodynamic properties as well as x-ray magnetic circular dichroism and the photoemission spectrum of single-crystal Fe3GeTe2. We find that the experimentally determined Sommerfeld coefficient is enhanced by an order of magnitude with respect to the LDA value. This enhancement can be partially explained by LDA+DMFT. In addition, the inclusion of dynamical electronic correlation effects provides the experimentally observed magnetic moments, and the spectral density is in better agreement with photoemission data. These results establish the importance of electronic correlations in this ferromagnet.
