  1. 1. Magnetic and Structural Properties of f-electron Systems from First Principles Theory

    Author : Torbjörn Björkman; Olle Eriksson; Thomas Schulthess; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Physics; Fysik; Materialvetenskap; Materials Science;

    Abstract : A series of studies of f-electron systems based on density functional theory methods have been performed.  The focus of the studies has been on magnetic and structural properties, as well as investigating ways to handle strong electron correlation in these systems. READ MORE

  2. 2. Resonant Inelastic X-ray Scattering of Rare-Earth and Copper Systems

    Author : Kristina Kvashnina; Joseph Nordgren; Clemens Heske; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Physics; resonant inelastic X-ray scattering; Fysik;

    Abstract : Rare earths and copper systems were studied using X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) and resonant inelastic X-ray scattering (RIXS). The use of monochromased synchrotron radiation and improved energy resolution for RIXS made possible to obtain valuable information on the electronic structure in 4f, 5f and 3d systems. READ MORE

  3. 3. Ab initio study of transition metal carbides and actinide compounds

    Author : Weiwei Sun; Pavel Korzhavyi; Igor Di Marco; Börje Johansson; Leon Petit; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Computational material science; material physics; Materials Science and Engineering; Teknisk materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : Two classes of materials are investigated using ab intio methods based on density functional theory. The structural properties, electronic structure and thermodynamic properties of binary and ternary transition metal carbides are discussed in details. In addition, two actinide compounds will be presented. READ MORE
