First Principles Investigation of Phase Stability of LaNi3 and LaMg2Ni9
First-principles calculations were performed to study the relative stabilities of LaNi3 and LaMg2Ni9. The calculated results show that LaMg2Ni9 has the higher stability than LaNi3. The preferential stability of LaMg2Ni9 was analyzed in both structural and electronic views.
