Electronic Structure and Magnetic Properties of the UPdAs_2 Compound

Title variants
Languages of publication
The electronic band structure of UPdAs_2 is calculated using full potential linearized augmented plane wave implemented in the WIEN2k code. Calculations were started with the exchange-correlation potential in the form proposed by Perdew, Burke and Ernzerhof (PBE). We additionally studied PBE+U approach with the Coulomb repulsion energies U applied to the uranium 5f orbital and varying from 0 to 4 eV. PBE+OP with orbital polarization term was one more tested approach. To reproduce magnetic sequence ++- a doubled in c axis supercell is built. Initial magnetic moments on inequivalent uranium atoms are assumed to be opposite. The antiferromagnetic ground state is confirmed by comparison of total energies calculated for various magnetic configurations. Results of PBE+U(1.0 eV)+J(0.5 eV) and PBE+OP approaches are in the best agreement with the neutron scattering measurements of magnetic moments. The calculated total magnetic moment on uranium atoms is predicted to be equal to 1.47 μ_{B}.
