Advantages of the DFT Augmented Symmetry Approach to Simulations of the Chromium-Based Ring Cr₈ within B3LYP Functional

Languages of publication
The DFT estimates of magnetic couplings in molecular nanomagnets are computationally demanding and their values have not achieved the satisfactory accuracy in spite of a lot of effort. We concentrate here on comprehensive tests for predictions of the recently proposed augmented symmetry approach aiming at reducing the computational complexity of the DFT calculations which is particularly important for the Wien2k code. Using the B3LYP functional, we demonstrate the numerical stability of magnetic couplings, magnetic moments and the HOMO-LUMO gaps, changing the fraction of exact exchange α. We reach the significant gain in the computing time without a loss in the accuracy of the final results with respect to those obtained by the standard PBE approach. We conclude that the value α=0.25 leads to best estimation of magnetic couplings for hybrid functionals within Wien2k.
