Orbital Order in the Spinel ZnV2O4
Roser Valenti (Univ. Frankfurt)

In view of recent controversy regarding the orbital order in the frustrated spinel ZnV2O4, we analyze the orbital and magnetic groundstate of this system within an ab initio density functional approach and show that the spin-orbit coupling alongwith electronic correlations play a significant role in determining the orbital structure in these type of systems.
