Depending on material details, some compounds show the coexistence of DSC and AFM9 while others exhibit microscopic separation of these two phases10 .

Conclusions — We shed light on the mechanism underlying peculiar magnetoelectric effects in Ba2CoGe2O7 , by combining different theoretical approaches and explicitely taking into account the microscopic atomic arrangement and symmetries of the compound.
Theoretical investigation of magnetoelectric effects in Ba2CoGe2O7
At the present time, the microscopic mechanism responsible for high-Tc FM is still quite controversial for the II-VI compounds, especially for Z nO based DMSs6 .

Based on density functional calculations, we report on the orbital order and microscopic magnetic model of FeNCN, a prototype compound for orbital-only models.
Orbital order and magnetism of FeNCN
The relationship between spin and orbital degrees of freedom in transition-metal compounds is well established on both phenomenological and microscopic levels.
Orbital order and magnetism of FeNCN
Whereas the fission valley in a macroscopic picture is several tens of MeV lower in energy than is the fusion valley, we find in the macroscopic-microscopic picture that the fission valley is only about 5 MeV lower than the fusion valley for soft-fusion reactions leading to compound systems near Z = 110.
