It was proposed that the ultrafast demagnetization measured in femtosecond magneto-optical experiments could be due to relativistic light-induced processes. We perform an ab initio investigation of the influence of relativistic effects on the magneto-optical response of Ni. To this end, first, we develop a response theory formulation of the additional appearing ultrarelativistic terms in the Foldy-Wouthuysen transformed Dirac Hamiltonian due to the electromagnetic field, and second, we compute the influence of relativistic light-induced spin-flip transitions on the magneto-optics. Our ab initio calculations of relativistic spin-flip optical excitations predict that these can give only a very small contribution (≤0.1%) to the laser-induced magnetization change in Ni.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Mondal, Ritwik</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2019-07-04T09:39:57Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Oppeneer, Peter M.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Oppeneer, Peter M.</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Ab initio investigation of light-induced relativistic spin-flip effects in magneto-optics</dcterms:title> <dc:creator>Berritta, Marco</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/41"/> <dc:creator>Carva, Karel</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Berritta, Marco</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2019-07-04T09:39:57Z</dcterms:available> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/46214"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:contributor>Carva, Karel</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Mondal, Ritwik</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/41"/> <dcterms:issued>2015</dcterms:issued> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
