In science:

Abstract: A simple discrete model for magnetic structures of chromium nanoclusters, found with the help of local-spin DFT by Kohl and Bertsch, still confirms their conclusion that in most of the clusters the magnetic moments are not collinear; instead, in most of the cases they are oriented within one plane.
Simple Simulation of Magnetic Structure for Nanoclusters
This work is based on a simple discrete model of the problem known as non-collinear magnetic ordering , and studied by Kohl and Bertsch in the frame of a general rotationally invariant form of local spin-density theory.
Simple Simulation of Magnetic Structure for Nanoclusters
Most of the cluster configurations are shown in Figs. 1 and 3 of Kohl and Bertsch and are defined in our table caption.
Simple Simulation of Magnetic Structure for Nanoclusters
Despite this simplification, we confirmed the trend of Kohl and Bertsch that clusters of ∼ 10 atoms in general have no collinear spins even though both the smallest cluster (pair) and the infinite bcc lattice have collinear spins, see the Table.

EF = (cid:18) 3π2 The experimental investigation of the Fermi surface in a 3D optical lattice was carried out by K¨ohl et al. (2005), who observed the transition from the spherical to the cubic shape by increasing the intensity of the laser generating the optical lattice (see Fig. 32).
