Magnon gravitomagnetoelectric effect in noncentrosymmetric antiferromagnetic insulators

18 Dec 2019  ·  Shitade Atsuo, Yanase Youichi ·

We study the magnon contribution to the gravitomagnetoelectric (gravito-ME) effect, in which the magnetization is induced by a temperature gradient, in noncentrosymmetric antiferromagnetic insulators. This phenomenon is totally different from the ME effect, because the temperature gradient is coupled to magnons but an electric field is not... We derive a general formula of the gravito-ME susceptibility in terms of magnon wave functions and find that a difference in $g$ factors of magnetic ions is crucial. We also apply our formula to a specific model. Although the obtained gravito-ME susceptibility is small, we discuss several ways to enhance this phenomenon. read more
