Structural, elastic and electronic Properties of isotropic cubic crystals of carbon and silicon nanotubes : Density functional based tight binding calculations.
Andrey N. Enyashin,Alexander L. Ivanovskii
Carbon : Science and Technology , 2008,
Abstract: Atomic models of cubic crystals (CC) of carbon and graphene-like Si nanotubes are offered and their structural, cohesive, elastic and electronic properties are predicted by means of the DFTB method. Our main findings are that the isotropic crystals of carbon nanotubes adopt a very high elastic modulus B and low compressibility β, namely B = 650 GPa, β = 0.0015 1/GPa. In addition, these crystals preserve the initial conductivity type of their “building blocks”, i.e. isolated carbon and Si nanotubes. This feature may be important for design of materials with the selected conductivity type.
Structural, electronic properties and Fermi surface of ThCr2Si2-type charge-balanced KFe2AsSe phase as a parent system for a new group of "mixed" pnictide-chalcogenide superconductors
Igor R. Shein,Alexander L. Ivanovskii
Physics , 2011, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevB.84.184509
Abstract: The ThCr2Si2-type arsenide-selenide phase KFe2AsSe is proposed as a parent system for a new "intermediate" group of Fe-based superconducting materials bridging the known families of Fe-pnictides (such as BaFe2As2) and Fe-chalcogenides (such as KxFe2-ySe2) superconductors. The characterization of the proposed charge-balanced phase by means of FLAPW-GGA approach covers the crystal structure, As/Se atomic ordering, stability, electronic bands, Fermi surface, and density of electronic states.
Modeling of Magnetic Properties of NiCl$_2$ Nanostripes, Nanotubes and Fullerenes
Andrey N. Enyashin,Alexander L. Ivanovskii
Physics , 2010, DOI: 10.1016/j.commatsci.2010.06.023
Abstract: We show that the magnetic properties of antiferromagnetic layered NiCl$_{2}$ can be altered under nano-sizing depending on dimensionality and morphology type of the corresponding nano-forms. By means of Monte-Carlo simulations within classical Heisenberg model, the spin ordering, magnetic part of heat capacity C$_{v}$ and N\'eel temperatures T$_{N}$ for multi-walled NiCl$_{2}$ nanotubes and a fullerene were calculated and analyzed in comparison with the bulk NiCl$_{2}$ and multilayered two-dimensional NiCl$_{2}$ crystals and nanostripes. We have found that the nano-structuring of NiCl$_{2}$ at the size reducing and at the formation of the closed structures can influence propitiously on the preservation of antiferromagnetic properties.
Structural, electronic properties and stability of MXenes Ti2C and Ti3C2 functionalized by methoxy groups
Andrey N. Enyashin,Alexander L. Ivanovskii
Physics , 2013,
Abstract: The properties of MXenes, a new group of quasi-two-dimensional d-metal carbide or nitride nanomaterials derived by chemical exfoliation from the MAX phases, can be very sensitive to the presence of surface functional groups. Herein, the MXenes Ti2C and Ti3C2 functionalized by methoxy groups are considered by means of the density functional theory tight-binding method. Their structural, electronic properties, and relative stability are discussed in comparison with related and experimentally fabricated hydroxy derivatives of MXenes.
Elastic properties of quaternary oxyarsenide LaOFeAs as basic phase for new 26-52K superconductors
I. R. Shein,A. L. Ivanovskii
Physics , 2008,
Abstract: The full-potential linearized augmented plane wave (FP-LAPW) method with the generalized gradient approximation (GGA) for the exchange-correlation potential has been applied to predict the elastic properties of quaternary oxyarsenide LaOFeAs - the basic phase for the newly discovered 26-52K superconductors. The optimized lattice parameters, independent elastic constants (Cij), bulk modulus B, compressibility betta, and shear modulus G are evaluated and discussed. For the first time the numerical estimates of the elastic parameters for polycrystalline LaOFeAs ceramics are performed. Our analysis shows that LaOFeAs belong to the anisotropic mechanically stable systems; a parameter limiting the mechanical stability of this material is the shear modulus. In addition, LaOFeAs is a soft material (B -98 GPa) with high compressibility (betta - 0.0102 1/GPa); lays at the border of a brittle behavior and adopts a high ionic contribution in intra-atomic bonding.
Atomic models of non-stoichiometric layered diborides M$_{1-x}$B$_2$ (M = Mg, Al, Zr and Nb) from first principles
I. R. Shein,A. L. Ivanovskii
Physics , 2008, DOI: 10.1016/j.physc.2008.06.009
Abstract: Two atomic models of non-stoichiometric metal diborides M$_{1-x}$B$_2$ are now assumed: (i) the presence of cation vacancies and (ii) the presence of 'super-stoichiometric' boron which is placed in cation vacancy site. We have performed first principle total energy calculations using the VASP-PAW method with the generalized gradient approximation (GGA) for the exchange-correlation potential in a perspective to reveal the trends of M$_{1-x}$B$_2$ possible stable atomic configurations depending on the type of M cations (M = Mg, Al, Zr or Nb) and the type of the defects (metal vacancies versus metal vacancies occupied by 'super-stoichiometric' boron in forms of single atoms, dimers B$_2$ or trimers B$_3$). Besides we have estimated the stability of these non-stoichiometric states (on the example of magnesium-boron system) as depending on the possible synthetic routes, namely via solid state reaction method, as well as in reactions between solid boron and Mg vapor; and between these reagents in gaseous phase. We demonstrate that the non-stoichiometric states such as B$_2$ and B$_3$ placed in metal sites may be stabilized, while the occupation of vacancy sites by single boron atoms is the most unfavorable.
Elastic properties of mono- and polycrystalline hexagonal AlB2-like diborides of s, p and d metals from first-principles calculations
I. R. Shein,A. L. Ivanovskii
Physics , 2008, DOI: 10.1088/0953-8984/20/41/415218
Abstract: We have performed accurate ab initio total energy calculations using the full-potential linearized augmented plane wave (FP-LAPW) method with the generalized gradient approximation (GGA) for the exchange-correlation potential to systematically investigate elastic properties of 18 stable, meta-stable and hypothetical hexagonal (AlB2-like) metal diborides MB2, where M = Na, Be, Mg, Ca, Al, Sc, Y, Ti, Zr, Hf, V, Nb, Ta, Cr, Mo, W, Ag and Au. For monocrystalline MB2 the optimized lattice parameters, independent elastic constants (Cij), bulk modules (B), shear modules (G) are obtained and analyzed in comparison with the available theoretical and experimental data. For the first time numerical estimates of a set of elastic parameters of the polycrystalline MB2 ceramics (in the framework of the Voigt-Reuss-Hill approximation), namely bulk and shear modules, compressibility, Young's modules, Poisson's ratio, Lame's coefficients are performed.
Structural and electronic properties of new "122" pnictogen-free superconductor SrPd2Ge2 as compared with SrNi2Ge2 and SrNi2As2: first principles calculations
I. R. Shein,A. L. Ivanovskii
Physics , 2009, DOI: 10.1016/j.ssc.2009.10.021
Abstract: Very recently the new low-temperature (TC ~ 3K) superconductor (SC) SrPd2Ge2 has been reported. This compound is isostructural with curently intensively studied group of so-called "122" SC's (based on tetragonal AM2Pn2 phases, where A are Sr, Ba; M are d metals and Pn are pnictogens: As or P), but it is pnictogen-free. Here, by means of first-principle FLAPW-GGA calculations, we have studied the electronic structure of new SC SrPd2Ge2. The band structure, total and partial densities of states and Fermi surface topology for SrPd2Ge2 are evaluated and discussed in comparison with those of isostructural SrNi2Ge2 and SrNi2As2 phases.

Trends in structural and electronic properties for layered SrRu2As2, BaRu2As2, SrRh2As2 and BaRh2As2 from ab initio calculations
I. R. Shein,A. L. Ivanovskii
Physics , 2009,
Abstract: Based on first-principle FLAPW-GGA calculations, we have investigated the systematic trends in structural and electronic properties of a newly discovered group of ThCr2Si2-like arsenides: SrRu2As2, BaRu2As2, SrRh2As2 and BaRh2As2. Our results show that the replacement of an alkaline earth metal (Sr - Ba) and 4d metal (Ru - Rh) leads to various types of anisotropic deformations of the crystal structure caused by strong anisotropy of inter-atomic bonds. The band structure, density of states and Fermi surfaces have been evaluated and discussed. Appreciable changes in the near-Fermi bands and the Fermi surface topology found as going from (Sr,Ba)Ru2As2 to (Sr,Ba)Rh2As2 reflect the growth of the 3D-like type of dispersion for these systems, which is accompanied by an increase in the near-Fermi density of states. The inter-atomic bonding in (Sr,Ba)(Ru,Rh)2As2 phases adopts a complex anisotropic character, where the bonding in [(Ru,Rh)2As2] blocks is of a mixed metallic-ionic-covalent type whereas between adjacent [(Ru,Rh)2As2] blocks and (Sr,Ba) atomic sheets, ionic interactions emerge; thus these systems may be classified as ionic metals.
