  1. 1. Materials Design from First Principles : stability and magnetism of nanolaminates

    Author : Martin Dahlqvist; Johanna Rosén; Nicola Spaldin; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : In this thesis, first-principles calculations within density functional theory are presented, with a principal goal to investigate the phase stability of so called Mn+1AXn (MAX) phases. MAX phases are a group of nanolaminated materials comprised of a transition metal (M), a group 12-16 element (A), and carbon or nitrogen (X). READ MORE

  2. 2. Ab initio Studies on Exchange Interactions in Metals and Correlated Oxides

    Author : Adam Jakobsson; Biplab Sanyal; Marjana Lezaic; Nicola Spaldin; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : A report is given on the implementation of a frozen magnon technique in the FLAPW code FLEUR, showing that the procedure reduced computational costs compared with a previously implemented method, while delivering accurate results. Furthermore a generalisation was made of the well known one lattice formula that connects the total energy differences of spin-spirals to the adiabatic magnon excitation energies to multiple lattice systems.
