Description

Spectacular experiments have demonstrated the controlled layer-by-layer growth of oxide heterostructures. This leads to the exciting prospect of tuning magnetism and topological states of correlated electrons in low dimensions. Here, we model $\{111\}$-grown bilayers of spin-orbit coupled double perovskites such as Sr$_2$FeMoO$_6$, showing that these buckled honeycomb materials act as half-metallic ferrimagnetic films. The combination of inter-orbital hybridization and symmetry-allowed trigonal distortion leads to a rich phase diagram with tunable magnetization directions, topological $C\!=\! \pm 1, \pm 2$ Chern bands, and a $C=\pm 2$ quantum anomalous Hall insulator regime. An effective two-band model of Zeeman-split $j\!=\! 3/2$ states captures this emergence of $C=\pm 2$ band topology.
