Hybrid ligand-field theory/quantum chemical calculation of the fine structure and ZFS in lanthanide(III) complexes

Borel, Alain ; Helm, Lothar ; Daul, Claude A.

In: Chemical Physics Letters, 2004, vol. 383 (5-6), p. 584-591

Ligand field effects in lanthanide ions compounds have consequences for optical and magnetic spectroscopy. In the analysis of electron paramagnetic resonance spectra of Gd³⁺ complexes, a major role is played by the zero field splitting (ZFS), which is a high order consequence of the ligand field and the spin–orbit coupling. We present a general parameterized method and a computer program for...

Application of the density functional theory derived orbital-free embedding potential to calculate the splitting energies of lanthanide cations in chloroelpasolite crystals

Zbiri, Mohamed ; Atanasov, Mihail ; Daul, Claude A. ; Garcia-Lastra, Juan Maria ; Wesolowski, Tomasz A.

In: Chemical Physics Letters, 2004, vol. 397(4-6), p. 441-446

Ligand field splitting energies of lanthanides Ln³⁺ (Ln = from Ce to Yb) in octahedral environment are calculated using the Hohenberg–Kohn theorems based orbital-free embedding formalism. The lanthanide cation is described at orbital level whereas its environment is represented by means of an additional term in the Kohn–Sham-like one-electron equations expressed as an explicit functional...

The calculation of ESR parameters by density functional theory: the g- and A-tensors of Co(acacen)

Atanasov, Mihail ; Baerends, Evert Jan ; Baettig, Pio ; Bruyndonckx, Raf ; Daul, Claude A. ; Rauzy, Cédrick ; Zbiri, Mohamed

In: Chemical Physics Letters, 2004, vol. 399(4-6), p. 433-439

The new DFT based ligand field (LF) model is proposed to calculate the g- and A-tensors of [Co(acacen)] that is known to be a difficult case. The results obtained are compared with the ZORA approach implemented in ADF as well as with the experimental values. The calculations are in good agreement with the experimental data and demonstrate the ability of the method to reproduce the large...

FP-LAPW investigation of electronic structure of TaN and TaC compounds

Sahnoun, Mohammed ; Daul, Claude A. ; Driz, Mohamed ; Parlebas, J.C. ; Demangeat, C.

In: Computational Materials Science, 2005, vol. 33(1-3), p. 175-183

We study the structural and electronic properties of tantalum compounds, i.e. TaC and TaN, by means of accurate first principle total energy calculations using the full-potential linearized augmented plane wave plus local orbitals (FP-LAPW + lo) method. The calculations are based on density functional theory and we use the local density approximation (LDA) as well as the generalized gradient...

Full potential calculation of structural, electronic and optical properties of KMgF₃

Sahnoun, Mohammed ; Zbiri, Mohamed ; Daul, Claude A. ; Khenata, R. ; Baltache, H. ; Driz, M.

In: Materials Chemistry and Physics, 2005, vol. 91(1), p. 185-191

A theoretical study of the structural, electronic and optical properties of KMgF₃ is presented using the full-potential linearized augmented plane wave method (FP-LAPW). In this approach, the local density approximation was used for the exchange-correlation potentials. First, we present the main features of the structural and electronic properties of this compound, where the electronic band...
