The full‐potential linearized augmented plane wave method with the generalized gradient approximation for the exchange and correlation potential (LAPW‐GGA) is used to understand the electronic and elastic properties of the first thorium‐containing nitride perovskite TaThN3. Total and partial density of states, charge distributions as well as the elastic constants, bulk modulus, compressibility, shear modulus, Young modulus and Poisson ratio are obtained for the first time and analyzed in…

▪ Abstract The synthesis of the two currently used superhard materials, diamond and cubic boron nitride, is briefly described with indications of the factors influencing the quality of the crystals
Generalized Gradient Approximation Made Simple.
TLDR
A simple derivation of a simple GGA is presented, in which all parameters (other than those in LSD) are fundamental constants, and only general features of the detailed construction underlying the Perdew-Wang 1991 (PW91) GGA are invoked.
Synthesis of the First Thorium-Containing Nitride Perovskite, TaThN3
Abstract TaThN 3 can be prepared from a reaction of Ta 2 Th 2 O 9 and Ca 3 N 2 at 1100-1500°C or from a reaction of Ta 3 N 5 and Th 3 N 4 at 1400°C. This black polycrystalline material crystallizes

Band offsets of wide-band-gap oxides and implications for future electronic devices
Wide-band-gap oxides such as SrTiO3 are shown to be critical tests of theories of Schottky barrier heights based on metal-induced gap states and charge neutrality levels. This theory is reviewed and
