|Abstract:||We address the room-temperature(RT) carbon ferromagnetism by considering the magnetic states of low-dimensional carbons linked by sp-hybridized carbon atoms. Based on the spin-polarized density functional theory calculations, we find that the sp* orbitals of carbon atoms can bring magnetic moments into different carbon allotropes which may eventually give rise to the long-range ferromagnetic ordering at room temperature through an indirect carrier-mediated coupling mechanism. The fact that this indirect coupling is Fermi-level-dependent predicts that the individual magnetism of diverse carbon materials is governed by their chemical environments. This mechanism may help to illuminate the RT magnetic properties of carbon-based materials and to explore the new magnetic applications of carbon materials. © 2010 IOP Publishing Ltd.|
