Abstract

Europium monoxide belongs to a unique class of magnetic semiconductors, in which the electric and magnetic properties are independnt. The energy levels, the atomic populations, and the charges on a metal were calculated for octahedral clusters in EuO by the X//a method of discrete variation in the basis of numerical orbits. The participation of the 4f orbitals in the chemical binding and the role of covalence in europium monoxide are discussed. The results of the calculations are compared with the experimental optical spectra, with photoemission spectra, with x-ray emission and absorption spectra, and also with the results of band calculations.
