Title: Study of the electronic and magnetic properties of EuAlO{sub 3} using FP-LAPW method

Abstract

The electronic and magnetic properties of EuAlO{sub 3} is calculated by first-principles full-potential linearized augmented plane wave (FP-LAPW) method based on density functional theory (DFT). Density of states (DOS), magnetic moments and band structures of the systems are presented. For the exchange and correlation energy, local spin density approximation (LSDA+U) with the inclusion of Hubbard potential U is used. Our calculation showed an indirect band gap of the order of 4 eV for EuAlO{sub 3} in the spin down channel of the DOS and band structures supporting HMF nature of the system. The effective magnetic moment of 6.00 µ{sub B} also supported the above conclusion with an integral value. The DOS of Eu were found responsible for the HMF nature of the system.
