Interplay of electronic structure, magnetic state, and lattice stability in iron oxides under extreme conditions — •Ivan Leonov — M.N. Mikheev Inst. of Metal Physics, Yekaterinburg, Russia — NUST ’MISiS’, Moscow, Russia

The theoretical understanding of iron oxides is of fundamental importance for modeling the properties and evolution of the Earth’s interior. Here, we employ the DFT+DMFT method to determine the electronic structure, magnetic state, and structural phase stability of paramagnetic hematite Fe2O3 and pyrite-type FeO2. Our results reveal a complex interplay between electronic correlations and the lattice in these compounds under extreme conditions. In particular, in the vicinity of a pressure-induced Mott transition Fe2O3 exhibits a series of complex electronic, magnetic, and structural transformations, which are accompanied by a site-selective collapse of local magnetic moments and delocalization of the Fe 3d electrons. Our results for structural optimization of FeO2 within DFT+DMFT show that FeO2 is a metal and that the oxidation state of Fe is equal to nearly 3+. In contrast to the previous claims, we found no noticeable oxygen-oxygen bonding in FeO2 to at least 180 GPa (no evidence for the O2 dimerization), implying that the oxidation state of oxygen in pyrite-type FeO2 is 1.5- due to the oxygen-to-iron negative charge transfer. Our calculations of the relative phase stability of FeO2 and Fe2O3 reveal that FeO2 is unstable below ∼40 GPa. In agreement with experiment, it is found to decompose into Fe2O3 with release of oxygen, suggesting the importance of iron oxides in oxygen cycling between Earth’s reservoirs.
