Magnetic Properties of Mn Doped NiO
ABINIT program package based on Density Functional Theory (DFT) within the Generalized Gradient Approximation (GGA) and plane wave basis set are used to calculate the magnetic properties of Mn doped NiO. It was found that the magnetic properties of Mn doped NiO were changed from anti-ferromagnetic (pure NiO) to ferromagnetism. Increasing the concentrations of Mn, the magnetization of Mn doped NiO were increased (Ni31MnO32 = 66.69 µB, Ni30Mn2O32 = 69.59 µB and Ni29Mn3O32 = 72.42 µB).
