The electronic structures and magnetic properties of MNCN (M = Fe, Co, and Ni) have been investigated by density-functional theory including explicit electronic correlation through an ad hoc Coulomb potential (GGA+U). The results evidence CoNCN and NiNCN as type-II anti-ferromagnetic semiconductors (that is, intralayer ferromagnetic and interlayer(More)
Ternary sodium borosilicide, Na(8)B(74.5)Si(17.5), was newly synthesized by heating a mixture of sodium, silicon and amorphous or crystalline boron at 1073-1273 K. The crystal structure of the black hexagonal prismatic single crystal obtained at 1273 K was analyzed. The X-ray diffraction reflections of the crystal were indexed with hexagonal cell parameters(More)

The phase diagram of (Fe(1-x) Mn(x))(3)C has been investigated by means of density-functional theory (DFT) calculations at absolute zero temperature. The atomic distributions of the metal atoms are not random-like as previously proposed but we find three different, ordered regions within the phase range. The key role is played by the 8d metal site which(More)
