2 Introduction perturbative vs. nonperturbative studies Molecular magnetism is usually studied perturbatively such an approach is highly successful and widely used in quantum chemistry molecular magnetic properties are accurately described by perturbation theory example: 2 MHz NMR spectra of vinyllithium experiment RHF MCSCF B3LYP We have undertaken a nonperturbative study of molecular magnetism gives new insight into molecular electronic structure describes atoms and molecules observed in astrophysics (stellar atmospheres) provides a framework for studying the current dependence of the universal density functional enables evaluation of many properties by finite-difference techniques Helgaker et al.

3 Introduction the electronic Hamiltonian The non-relativistic electronic Hamiltonian (a.u.) in a magnetic field B along the z axis: H = H BLz + Bsz B2 (x 2 + y 2 ) linear and quadratic B terms H is the field-free operator and L and s the orbital and spin angular momentum operators one atomic unit of B corresponds to T = G Coulomb regime: B a.u. earth-like conditions: Coulomb interactions dominate magnetic interactions are treated perturbatively earth magnetism 1 1, NMR 1 4 ; pulsed laboratory field 1 3 a.u. Intermediate regime: B 1 a.u. the Coulomb and magnetic interactions are equally important complicated behaviour resulting from an interplay of linear and quadratic terms white dwarves: up to about 1 a.u. Landau regime: B 1 a.u. astrophysical conditions: magnetic interactions dominate Landau levels: harmonic-oscillator Hamiltonian with force constant B 2 /4 Coulomb interactions are treated perturbatively relativity becomes important for B α a.u. neutron stars a.u. We here consider the weak and intermediate regimes (B < 1 a.u.) For a review, see D. Lai, Rev. Mod. Phys. 73, 629 (21) Helgaker et al.

4 Introduction London orbitals and size extensivity The non-relativistic electronic Hamiltonian in a magnetic field: H = H BLz + Bsz B2 (x 2 + y 2 ) linear and quadratic B terms The orbital-angular momentum operator is imaginary and gauge-origin dependent L = i (r O), A O = 1 B (r O) 2 we must optimize a complex wave function and also ensure gauge-origin invariance Gauge-origin invariance is ensured by using London atomic orbitals (LAOs) ω lm (r K, B) = exp [ 1 2 ib (O K) r] χ lm (r K ) special integral code needed London orbitals are necessary to ensure size extensivity and correct dissociation H 2 dissociation FCI/un-aug-cc-pVTZ B 2.5 diamagnetic system full lines: with LAOs dashed lines: AOs with mid-bond gauge origin Helgaker et al.

5 Introduction the London program and overview We have developed the London code for calculations in finite magnetic fields complex wave functions and London atomic orbitals Hartree Fock theory (RHF, UHF, GHF), FCI theory, and Kohn Sham theory energy, gradients, excitation energies London atomic orbitals require a generalized integral code 1 F n(z) = exp( zt 2 )t 2n dt complex argument z C++ code written by Erik Tellgren, Kai Lange, and Alessandro Soncini C 2 is a large system Overview: closed-shell paramagnetic molecules: transition to diamagnetism helium atom in strong fields: atomic distortion and electron correlation H 2 and He 2 in strong magnetic fields: bonding, structure and orientation molecular structure in strong magnetic fields conclusion Previous work in this area: much work has been done on small atoms FCI on two-electron molecules H 2 and H but without London orbitals Nakatsuji s free complement method no general molecular code with London orbitals Helgaker et al.

6 Closed-shell paramagnetic molecules molecular diamagnetism and paramagnetism.1 The Hamiltonian has paramagnetic and diamagnetic parts: a) b) x H = H BLz + Bsz B2 (x y 2 ) linear and quadratic B terms.6 Most closed-shell molecules are diamagnetic their energy increases in an applied magnetic field.4 induced currents oppose the field according to Lenz s law Some closed-shell systems are paramagnetic their energy decreases in a magnetic field relaxation of the wave function lowers the energy RHF calculations of the field-dependence for two closed-shell systems: a) c) b) x d) left: benzene: diamagnetic dependence on an out-of-plane field, χ < right: BH: c) paramagnetic dependence on a perpendicular d) field, χ > Helgaker et al.

7 Closed-shell paramagnetic molecules diamagnetic transition at stabilizing field strength B c However, all systems become diamagnetic in sufficiently strong fields: The transition occurs at a characteristic stabilizing critical field strength B c B c.1 for C 2 (ring conformation) above B c is inversely proportional to the area of the molecule normal to the field we estimate that B c should be observable for C 72H 72 We may in principle separate such molecules by applying a field gradient Helgaker et al.

9 Closed-shell paramagnetic molecules induced electron rotation The magnetic field induces a rotation of the electrons about the field direction: the amount of rotation is the expectation value of the kinetic angular-momentum operator Λ = 2E (B), Λ = r π, π = p + A Paramagnetic closed-shell molecules (here BH): E(B x ) E(B x ) Energy!25.11!25.12!25.13!25.14!25.15 L (B ) L x (B x ) x x Angular momentum !25.16!.5! no rotation at B = paramagnetic rotation against Orbital the energies field reduces the energy HOMO!LUMO for < B < gapb c maximum paramagnetic rotation at the inflection point.5 E (B) = no rotation and lowest.1 energy at B = B c.48 diamagnetic rotation with the field increases the energy for B > B c.46 Diamagnetic closed-shell molecules:!.1 LUMO.44 diamagnetic rotation always increases HOMO the energy according to Lenz s law!(b x ) L x / r!

10 The helium atom total energy and orbital energies The helium energy behaves in simple manner in magnetic fields (left) an initial quadratic diamagnetic behaviour is followed by a linear increase in B this is expected from the Landau levels (harmonic potential increases as B 2 ) The orbital energies behave in a more complicated manner (right) the initial behaviour is determined by the angular momentum beyond B 1, all energies increase with increasing field HOMO LUMO gap increases, suggesting a decreasing importance of electron correlation 3 Helium atom, RHF/augccpVTZ 1 Helium atom, RHF/augccpVTZ 2 8 Energy, E [Hartree] 1 1 Orbital energy, [Hartree] Field, B [au] Field, B [au] Helgaker et al.

12 The helium atom atomic size and atomic distortion Atoms become squeezed and distorted in magnetic fields Helium 1s 2 1 S (left) becomes squeezed and prolate Helium 1s2p 3 P (right) is oblate in weak fields and prolate in strong fields transversal size proportional to 1/ B, longitudinal size proportional to 1/ log B Atomic distortion affects chemical bonding which orientation will be favored?

17 The H 2 molecule electron rotation and correlation The field induces a rotation of the electrons Λ z about the molecular axis increased rotation increases kinetic energy, raising the energy concerted rotation reduces the chance of near encounters natural occupation numbers indicate reduced importance of dynamical correlation Helgaker et al. (CTCC, University of Oslo) Molecules in strong magnetic fields CCTCC Jackson / 23

18 The helium dimer the 1 Σ + g (1σg1σ 2 u 2 ) singlet state The field-free He 2 is bound by dispersion in the ground state our FCI/un-aug-cc-pVTZ calculations give D =.8 kj/mol at R e = 33 pm (too short) In a magnetic field, He 2 becomes smaller and more strongly bound this effect is particularly strong in the perpendicular orientation (dashed lines) for B = 2.5, D = 31 kj/mol at R e = 94 pm and Θ e = B B B 1.

19 The helium dimer the 3 Σ + u (1σ2 g 1σ u 2σg) triplet state He 2 in the covalently bound triplet state becomes further stabilized in a magnetic field D = 178 kj/mol at R e = 14 pm at B = D = 655 kj/mol at R e = 8 pm at B = 2.25 (parallel orientation) D = 379 kj/mol at R e = 72 pm at B = 2.25 (perpendicular orientation) The molecule begins a transition to diamagnetism at B B B B B 2.5 In strong magnetic fields, He 2 has a quintet ground state Helgaker et al. (CTCC, University of Oslo) Molecules in strong magnetic fields CCTCC Jackson / 23

20 The helium dimer the lowest singlet, triplet and quintet states We have considered the lowest singlet, triplet and quintet states in the absence of a field, only the triplet state is covalently bound however, in sufficiently strong fields, the ground state is a bound quintet state at B = 2.5, it has a perpendicular minimum of D = 1 kj/mol at R e = 118 pm Below, we have plotted singlet (left), triplet (middle) and quintet (right) states bound states contract with shrinking size of the atoms and become more strongly bound non-covalently bound molecules energy minimum in perpendicular orientation In strong fields, anisotropic Gaussians are needed for a compact description for B 1 without such basis sets, calculations become speculative Helgaker et al.
