1 Impurity effect on charge and spin density in α-Fe – comparison between cellular model, ab initio calculations and Mössbauer spectroscopy data A. Błachowski 1, U.D. Wdowik 2, K.

2 Impurities dissolved randomly on regular iron sites in BCC iron

3 Impurities modify magnetic hyperfine field B (electron spin density on Fe nucleus) and isomer shift S (electron charge density on Fe nucleus). Aim of this contribution is to separate VOLUME EFFECT and BAND EFFECT due to addition of impurity. Electron charge and spin densities on Fe nucleus are affected by volume effect caused by solution of impurity and by conduction band modification.

4 1) One can study variation dB/dc of average magnetic hyperfine field B on Fe nucleus versus particular impurity concentration c. Similar variation d /dc of average electron density on Fe nucleus could be conveniently observed via isomer shift variation dS/dc, where S denotes a total shift versus total shift in pure -Fe.

7 Correlation between electron spin density (dB/dc) and electron density (dS/dc) variations for various impurities BAND EFFECT + VOLUME EFFECT Isomer shift S could be transformed into electron density on Fe nucleus Calibration constant

8 2) QUESTION How to separate VOLUME EFFECT and BAND EFFECT introduced by impurity? ANSWER VOLUME EFFECT can be calculated for pure -Fe by using ab initio methods (Wien2k). In order to do so one has to calculate magnetic hyperfine field B and electron density on Fe nucleus for pure -Fe varying lattice constant a.

12 Pure BAND MODIFICATION EFFECT i.e. volume effect due to impurity is removed. Volume correction for electron spin density (hyperfine field) and for electron charge density (isomer shift) 1) + 2) + 3) 1) - Mössbauer data - ab initio calculations - X-ray diffraction data 2) 3)

13 Correlation between volume corrected (pure BAND EFFECT) electron spin density (dB/dc) b and electron density (dS/dc) b variations for various impurities All d metals fall on single straight line with positive slope. Hence, the band effect is almost the same regardless of principal quantum number of d shell of impurity.

14 Correlation between electron spin density and electron density variations for various impurities: (a) – total; (b) – volume corrected, i.e., pure band effect.
