Abstract First-principles calculations based on density functional theory (DFT) using the self-consistent full-potential linearized augmented plane wave (FPLAPW) method were applied to study the electronic structures and magnetic properties of new Heusler alloys CoYO 2 (Y = Sc, Ti, V, Cr, Mn, Fe, Ni, Cu, and Zn). The calculated formation energies of these compounds were negative, therefore, they can be synthesized experimentally. All compounds were stable in ferromagnetic AlCu 2 Mn-type… CONTINUE READING
