  1. 1. Theory of Disordered Magnets

    Author : Oleg E. Peil; Börje Johansson; Hubert Ebert; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; disordered alloys; magnetic alloys; spin glasses; ab initio calculations; Monte Carlo methods; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : Studying magnetic properties of disordered alloys is important both for the understanding of phase transformations in alloys and from the point of view of fundamental issues of magnetism in solids. Disorder in a magnetic system can result in unconventional magnetic structures, such as spin glass, which have rather peculiar features. READ MORE

  2. 2. Uncovering Magnetic Order in Nanostructured Disordered Materials : A Study of Amorphous Magnetic Layered Structures

    Author : Panagiotis Korelis; Björgvin Hjörvarsson; Gabriella Andersson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Amorphous Materials; Magnetism; Amorphous Magnetism; Magnetic Measurements; Thin Films; Multilayers; Thin Film Deposition; Sputtering; FeZr Alloys; AlZr Alloys; X-ray Diffraction; Rutherford Backscattering Spectrometry; Physics with spec. in Atomic; Molecular and Condensed Matter Physics; Fysik med inriktning mot atom- molekyl- och kondenserande materiens fysik;

    Abstract : The scope of this thesis is the study of the interplay between structure and magnetism in amorphous materials. The investigations focus on the growth of amorphous layers and the study of the influence of structural disorder and reduced physical extension on the magnetic properties of thin films and multilayers.

  3. 3. First-principles investigations of ordering in binary alloys

    Author : Moshiour Rahaman; Andrei Ruban; Staunton Julie; KTH; []

    Abstract : The aim of the thesis is to study ordering in binary alloys on the basis of first-principles or {\it ab-initio} techniques employing density functional theory (DFT). The ordering phenomena of materials are of crucial importance for technological applications. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Effect of Long Range Order on Elastic Properties of Alloys

    Author : Guisheng Wang; Levente Vitos; Balázs Ujfalussy; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; long-range order; elastic constant; alloys; magnetic; Industriell ekonomi och organisation; Industrial Engineering and Management;

    Abstract : Ab initio alloy theory, formulated within the exact muffin-tin orbitals method in combination with the coherent-potential approximation, is used to determine the effect of long range order on the elastic properties. The lattice parameters and single-crystal elastic constants of Cu3Au are calculated for different partially ordered structures ranging from the fully ordered L12 to the random face centered cubic lattice.
