What is it about?

This work correlates specific atomic structures of Mn stubsititions in SrTiO3 with predicted EPR spectra. EPR provides an experimental way to measure the state of a magnetic dopant like Mn. The results show how mobile Mn atoms on Sr sites are, as well as the charge of Mn on Ti sites.

Why is it important?

First principle calculations provide a unique way to detangle experimental spectra as they provide a way to predict the specific spectral response of a set of atoms. As typical experiments measure multiple structures at once, these calculations provide a way to tie specific structure to the transitions measured by the spectrocopy.
