Abstract

In this Letter we report the local density approximation with dynamical mean field theory results for magnetic properties of the parent superconductor LaFeAsO in the paramagnetic phase. Calculated uniform magnetic susceptibility shows linear dependence at intermediate temperatures in agreement with experimental data. Contributions to the temperature dependence of the uniform susceptibility are strongly orbitally dependent. For high temperatures (>1000K) susceptibility first saturates and then decreases with temperature. Our results demonstrate that linear-temperature dependence of static magnetic susceptibility in pnictide superconductors can be reproduced without invoking antiferromagnetic fluctuations.
