Magnetocrystalline Anisotropy in(FexNi1-x)2B Materials
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
The magnetic properties of the (FexNi1-x)2B family of materials are explored using DFT calculations utilizing the FPLO and SPR-KKR code packages. It is found that a uniaxial magnetocrystalline anisotropy exists at around x = 0.8 with a magnetocrystalline anisotropy energy at around 0.3 MJ/m^3. A calculation of the lattice constant for these materials were attempted but failed due to the emergence of local minima and the calculations of magnetic properties were instead done using lattice parameters interpolated between known experimental values.
