A New Heusler Alloy of V2NiGa: A First-Principles Study

Abstract:

Article Preview

A new Heusler alloy V2NiGa with Hg2CuTi-type structure was investigated by first-principles calculations. The band structures and magnetic properties have been studied. The alloy has a total magnetic moment of 1.05μB per unit cell on first-principles calculations which is in agreement with the SlaterPauling (SP) rule. The magnetic moments of V(1) atom and V(2) atom are 1.28μB and-0.44μB respectively, so the alloy is a ferrimagnetism.
