Cover Picture: Magnetic Properties of a Ni2+ Kagome System (ChemPhysChem 2/2007)
The cover picture shows the in-plane segment of a Ni-kagome layer, giving rise to magnetic polarization (see hysteresis) due to Ni spins lying above and below the kagome plane. The spin densities of a hexagon of this Ni-kagome compound obtained through density functional theory shows that the spin-polarized structure (shown) with canted moments due to Dzyaloshinsky–Moriya (DM) interactions is more stable compared to the spin-zero structure.
