The electronic energy structures and magnetic properties of layered superconductors $R$Ni$_2$B$_2$C, $R$Fe$_4$Al$_8$ and FeSe are systematically studied, by using the density functional theory (DFT). The calculations allowed us to reveal a number of features of the electronic structure, which can cause the manifestation of peculiar structural, magnetic and superconducting properties of these systems. It is demonstrated that the Fermi energy $E_{\rm F}$ is located close to the pronounced peaks…

Angle resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) reveals the features of the electronic structure of quasi-two-dimensional crystals which are crucial for spin and charge ordering and determine the
Magnetic properties of superconducting FeSe in the normal state
It is shown that the literature experimental data on the strong and nonmonotonic pressure dependence of the superconducting transition temperature in FeSe correlate qualitatively with the calculated behavior of the density of electronic states at the Fermi level.
