Uncovering the secrets of metamagnetic Sr4Ru3O10: How electronic structure and symmetry shape its behavior

Metamagnetic materials, like Sr4Ru3O10, have potential applications for spintronics and novel information technologies, which involves using the spin of electrons in devices. In this study, we used advanced spectroscopic techniques to investigate Sr4Ru3O10 and understand between the electronic structure, crystal symmetries, spin-orbit coupling and magnetism. We used low temperature scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy to study the material’s metamagnetism. Our results provide new insights into how the electronic structure of Sr4Ru3O10 influences its properties, which could potentially be useful for developing new spintronic devices.
