**magnetic hyperfine field B (electron spin density on Fe nucleus) and **

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

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.

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

**VOLUME EFFECT and BAND EFFECT introduced by impurity? ANSWER **

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.
