In the present study, the structural, electronic, magnetic, anisotropic elastic and lattice dynamic properties of the ternary metal borides (, and ) known as MAB phases have been investigated by density functional theory. The obtained results from the structural optimizations show that all these compounds have negative formation enthalpy implying the thermodynamic stability and synthesizability. The spin effects on the phases have been studied with the plotted energy-volume curves for different magnetic phases (antiferromagnetic (AFM), ferromagnetic (FM), and paramagnetic (PM)) of these compounds. The stable magnetic phase for the compound is found to be AFM while the magnetic nature of and compounds are FM. The calculated electronic band structures with the total and orbital projected partial density of electronic states imply that these ternary metal borides have metallic behavior. Also, the mentioned compounds have mechanical and dynamic stability due to the calculated elastic constants and the observed phonon dispersion curves. Some thermodynamic properties have been investigated by means of phonon dispersion curves. Furthermore, the anisotropic elastic properties have been visualized in three dimensions (3D) for Young’s modulus, linear compressibility, shear modulus, Poisson’s ratio, and sound wave velocities.

Mohammad, Rezek; Katırcıoğlu, Şenay (Elsevier BV, 2009-06-10)
The structural and electronic properties of BN and BP compounds and BNxP1-x alloys have been investigated by full potential linearized augmented plane wave (FP-LAPW) method based on density functional theory (DFT). The total energies and electronic band structures of these compounds have been calculated for different approximations of exchange-correlation energy. The comparative study has showed that the Perdew-Wang-generalized gradient approximation (PW-GGA) is the best one to produce the measured structur...

Mohammad, Rezek; Katırcıoğlu, Şenay (Elsevier BV, 2009-02-05)
The band cap bowings of InNxAs1-x, InNxSb1-x, and InAsxSb1-x alloys defined by the optimized lattice constants are investigated using empirical tight binding (ETB) method. The present ETB energy parameters which take the nearest neighbor interactions into account with sp(3)d(2) basis are determined to be sufficient to provide a typical feature for the band gap bowings of the alloys. The band gap bowing parameter is found to be relatively large in both InNxAs1-x and InNxSb1-x compared to InAsxSb1-x alloys. M...

Primarily attributed to the formation of the ferromagnetic τ-phase, near equiatomic composition of Mn–Al have recently received much attention in permanent magnet industry. Several mechanisms have been proposed in literature for the τ-phase formation but controversy still arises regarding the dominating mode. In the current work, MnAl-based alloys having different compositions in a range between Mn50.5Al49.5 and Mn57Al43 have been studied by means of in-situ high energy X-ray diffraction, differential scann...
THE POWER SPECTRUM ASSOCIATED WITH A KINK CHAIN OSCILLATING IN A NON-STOKESIAN ATMOSPHERE OF PARAELASTIC INTERSTITIALS
OGURTANI, T; GUNGOR, R (Elsevier BV, 1994-09-01)
The power spectrum of a built-in kink chain oscillating in an atmosphere of paraelastic interstitials was investigated numerically using a fast Fourier transform technique. Above a sharply defined value of the strain amplitude, odd-harmonic generation is observed only at the low-temperature side of the dislocation relaxation peak associated with interstitial-kink interaction. At moderately high strain amplitudes, a strong enhancement of the harmonics situated in the immediate vicinity of the natural resonan...
