Orbital magnetization in periodic solids

The orbital magnetization in periodic solids has been nicely described by the so-called modern theory of magnetization [1,2,3,4]. $$\tag{1} \mathcal{M}_{orb} = -\frac{1}{2} \Im \sum_{n,\mathbf{k}} f_{...

Handling multiple self-consistent solutions with DFT+U

It is well-established that within the DFT+U framework, one can achieve several self-consistent solutions with greatly varying energies for the same exact magnetic ordering. In 2010, Meredig et al. ...

What are Crystal Electric Field Parameters?

What does the following notation mean? $$A_{20}\left<r^2\right> = -100 \mathrm{K}$$ Where $A_{20}$ is termed a Crystal Electric Field Parameter. I often see this notation when reading papers on ...

Why can't DFT calculate the energy of magnetic diatomic molecules accurately?

I am trying to calculate the reaction enthalpy change of $\ce{2H2 + O2->2H2O}$, my plan is to calculate the energy of $\ce{H2, O2 \text{and} H2O}$, respectively, then do the simple math. But I find ...

Does hysteresis depend on anisotropy?

I was reading a manual on magnetic materials. It discussed the origin of hysteresis of ferromagnetic materials, but it is not clear to me whether or not it depends on anisotropy. I understand that the ...
