The oxygen vacancies of Y3Fe5O12(YIG) influence on the magnetic proximity effect (MPE) in Au/YIG heterostructures has been studied by first principles calculations based on the density functional theory (DFT). The results show that one oxygen vacancies can reduce the two neighbor Fe3+ to Fe2+ and MPE in Au/YIG is strongly depended on the valence states of Fe ion. The induced magnetism in Au atoms is found to increase with the increasing concentration of Fe2+. In oxygen vacancy free case (Fe3+ state), weak electron states hybridization of Fe(3d) and Au(5d) is found form the projected electron density of states distribution, while after introduce the oxygen vacancy (Fe2+ state), the states of Fe(3d) are generally move to higher energy states and hybridize with the Au(5d) states. Moreover, more states of Fe2+ at tetrahedral sites are hybridize with the Au(5d) states compare with that of Fe2+ at octahedral sites, therefore a net magnetic moment induced Au atoms is found and the direction of spin polarization of Au atoms is paralleled to Fe ion at tetrahedral sites.
